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.

Recommends
Neutral Outlook
Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The engineers there are very smart and versatile. They know what they do.

    Cons

    However, an engineer may server a few PM, a few BA, a few QA, and 1-2 manager. It does not make sense after all

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more engineers and flatten the company.
