I worked at BlackBerry full-time (Less than a year)
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.
None, I absolutely loved it,
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing!
I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in November 2010.
Several interviews. Quick overview of resume with HR. Two additional interviews with team and hiring manager to go over specifics with examples of previous work, as well as behavioural questions.
