    I worked at BlackBerry full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Absolutely loved working there, the environment is very ripe with opportunity and the support provided by my immediate leaders was great. I was able to pitch an idea and see it come to life within my tenure which was awesome to witness. John Chen was always very welcoming and honest about where the company stood and thats what I loved the most, honesty with a gameplan.

    Cons

    None, I absolutely loved it,

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    I have been working at BlackBerry full-time

    Pros

    Very busy with the turn around in full effect. Benefits and work life balance is good.
