Engaging work, above average pay, friendly co-workers

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Waterloo, ON (Canada)

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 Senior Management- 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
