Great People, Horrible Work Environment
Software Developer (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 5 February 2018
If all you care about is money, then BBM is a great place to work. They pay fairly well for a tech company, especially for new grads.
The CDN team is super talented, but are treated like second tier employees since the company in HQ'd out of Indonesia & Singapore, following acquisition from Blackberry.
Employees work crazy hours, and then are asked to work even harder (with no additional compensation) since the company is losing users on a daily basis. If you don't want to work later into the evening or on weekends, you are told that you are not working as part of the team, and that maybe it isn't the right job for you.
Company is trying to do too many things at once, and are actually ruining their product instead of improving it.
Excellent Pay & Benefits (RRSP)
Work life balance, business in serious decline, unsure about future of Canadian team employment
