    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at BlackBerry full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Location in London is great, 5 min walk to Covent Garden and a lot of theatres nearby. The office is opposite Somerset House with multiple transport links.

    Cons

    The decision making process is really long and the information is locked down within small groups of people. Communication across whole organisation needs to improved. No career progression but interview process is time consuming.

    I worked at BlackBerry full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Compensation, good people are still around.

    Cons

    EMEA management is a mess. Very aggressive towards employees. Management by fear is the standard. Marketing is allocated to the UK where most of the revenue is generated and all other countries are dragging behind. Good members of the top management are moving away.

    Current Employee - Analyst in Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England

    I have been working at BlackBerry full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Nothing I can think of.

    Cons

    Too much to do and management does not understand the employees needs. Very hectic environment. Upper management in US/Canada controls everything and senior management in UK are very scared to lose their jobs so they avoid to tell the reality to them. Senior Manager of Enterprise support keeps sitting in front of computer and does not even bother to talk to the department on daily basis.
