I worked at BlackBerry as an intern for less than a year

Pros

- BB has had setbacks, but it's still a world leader in smartphone. BB10 is set to launch 2013 Jan 30th
- Challenging and engaging work with embedded systems
- Decent pay
- Friendly colleagues

Cons

- Not everyone there is as motivated as you'd hope. This makes a big difference in how you feel about the work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- My immediate management was solid, no complaints.
- Company is in a tough spot right now, so it doesn't exactly have the luxury: but cut the fat wherever you can.

    Intern: The company is recovering, but still has some bureaucracy which can be maddening.

    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.
