I worked at BlackBerry as an intern (less than an 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.

    I worked at BlackBerry

    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.
