Featured Review

Former Employee - University Intern

I worked at Hydro One full-time for more than a year

Pros

Lots of Opportunities to get involved with different projects

Cons

Hard to get full time job even as a previous intern with great references

Advice to Management

Hiring Hall is not an efficient solution to obtain good workers

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.
