Featured Review

Current Employee - Solutions Architect

I have been working at Amazon full-time for less than a year

Pros

Great on-boarding process for new team members. Great learning opportunities (training, job shadow, certification paths). Everybody is very helpful and friendly. A strong and very capable team.... Low administrative overhead with a lot of things being done lean. The Amazon Leadership Principles come up in pretty much everything we do and is something that serves as inspiration.

Cons

The drawback of being on a fast-growing team is that almost everybody in the team is new to Amazon. We compensate for this by having mentors elsewhere in the organization and by being resourceful in... settling in.

Current Employee - Security Analyst

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

Pros

People are wonderful, very welcoming. Very diverse set of skills and abilities within the organization. Never short from learning on a daily basis.

Cons

Work-life balance is very difficult. It may be unique to my role given I'm in security and monitoring. BlackBerry has a hard rule from working from home which has only gotten more extreme. Before it... was casual and if you had a good reason, I'm thinking some people abused the freedom we had. Unfortunately this has stifled my family life and I feel like I'm always in the office.

Advice to Management

Discuss hours of operation, work from home capability again. Competing organizations are well advanced in comparison.
