I have been working at BlackBerry as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Comfortable Work environment. Meaningful work.

Cons

Bureaucracy. Slow pace of getting things done. Not a data driven company in many departments.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think a data driven approach to infrastructure and the old CIO departments needs to be adopted.
