    Advice to Management

    The attrition since being acquired at Blackberry is the worst I've seen. Stop the bleeding, re-invigorate the sales/marketing teams, and provide clearer outlook on product roadmaps.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at BlackBerry for less than a year

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits A more casual work environment compared to say government jobs The folks I worked with were very supportive and helpful in getting me up to speed with my work, and even to check in with me to see how things were going

    Cons

    Classic office environment with not much open/creative space to change up work station or have one-on-one meetings The work as an intern was infrequent at times; sometimes there would be a lot going on and at other times, there wouldn't be much work to do
