    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.

    I worked at BlackBerry full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    This company does put emphasis to retain talents and aims to provide top 25% employee benefits in the industry.

    Cons

    the senior management has been too volatile over the past few years, VPs and Directors have been continuously changing. Each time a change of the upper level, a big shake up inside the organization, re-org happened too often.

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

    Pros

    Great technology and engineering. The engineering teams created wonderful technology and offered great solutions to businesses.

    Cons

    Management only interested in themselves and building empires. Non of the senior management team I worked for had a clue about the markets or the people working for them. They only wanted to profit from the work done by their teams. I experienced a total lack of support and a clique of managers who only supported the management team.
