Senior Manager (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 18 May 2018
BlackBerry has a fantastic culture, with tons of talented people working there. The biggest drawback about them was the downturn, but now that they've stabilized, I would highly recommend working there.
DIRECTOR, SUPPLY CHAIN EXECUTION (Current Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 26 February 2018
BlackBerry was a great place to work but something has changed culturally (not for the better) since the pivot to a software solutions company. That said, the compensation remains great - especially for Waterloo Region.
Inside Sales Intern (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 11 January 2018
Great learning experience for entry level. Lot's of training and business exposure. An awesome place to work. The teams all have highly trained and experienced people who will help make your experience amazing.
Inside Sales Account Manager (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 4 January 2018
The period I was with them was unstable and unsettling: the problems were everywhere from various department: people do not work as a team. company efficiency is very low. Management team is horrible: they say one thing and do another.
Communications and Information Management Advisor (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 4 January 2018
I enjoyed my work at BlackBerry, but the last year was very difficult due to the threat of impending layoffs and a changing business model. As the amount of work dropped off, it was less and less satisfying to work there.
Intern (Former Employee) – Sunrise, FL – 3 January 2018
3 years later and I still feel so lucky to work here! My HR (People) leadership team supports me and constantly pushes me to grow. My goals and the goals of my teammates are clear, and we are encouraged to help each other and teach each other along the way. My opportunities feel endless here, there is always something new and exciting to work on around the corner. The benefits are extremely generous: free healthcare
Enterprise Software Development Support Specialist (Current Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 29 November 2017
Blackberry is the best company to work for. Work - life balance is the best with flexible work hours and good benefits. Good managers, cares about everyone and understand each and every situation and support thoroughly.
Beta Software Tester (Co-Op) (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 12 November 2017
I worked as a co-op student and I really enjoyed working here. But it is very difficult to continue job after co-op as they do not have more job posting and if they have, it requires more than 5+ experience.
Full of small town no-exposure undeserving Managers
Team Leader/Supervisor (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 7 November 2017
If you want to work with undeserving people with no exposure to the world or current technology, Blackberry is the place for you. Be ready to be negative, as reflected in this review, and complain but don't you try to change anything. If you do, your manager will make sure you get a hard push back you don't try it again. In short, worst place to work.
Fun and no work
You can't work anywhere else now because you will learn nothing new.
