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.

    Pros

    RIM has given a lot to his employees, good salary, good working condition, friendly people.
