Great place to work if you are up for the challenges and opportunities arise from company's transformation. Management is very understanding of all the changes happening and if you seek for additional help or support and management is very supportive of your initiatives.

Senior Software Development Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Kanata, ON – 3 March 2017
no two days at blackberry were the same. constantly learning something new, developing skills i did not join the company with
the management is varies from team to team, i was fortunate to have an outstanding management chain.
the culture at blackberry had become muted. in its prime, blackberry was a fun company with an airy atmosphere. lately however, with the rapid decline in brand loyalty, folks are less open, and more worried about their job security.
the hardest part of my position was also the most enjoyable: my roll evolved past my formal education and past work experience. i was developing new skills every day and was expected to utilize them at a master level
compensation package, flexible hours, friendly management and staff
little work/life balance..constantly on my device at night. Defending the Brand

My time at BlackBerry has been amazing. BlackBerry is a fast paced environment. The hardest part of my job is trying to please everyone. The best part or most enjoyable part is knowing I have done all I can do and everyone is the better for it

Typical day at work involved handling and troubleshooting failures in network and/or infrastructure.
Co-op role was given a free leash by the end of the year and lots of responsibilities. It was an informal environment with friendly coworkers and loads to learn and apply. Ideas were appreciated and if one is willing to put efforts, it is acknowledged.
