Shell of a culture and company it once was, good talent gone, employees just numbers...
Marketing Manager (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 15 April 2018
Was there for the good times and not so good times... Learned a tremendous amount about the industry, and the internal and external forces that impact a major company downturn. Was shocked at how poor management was rewarded by out of touch executives and how employees were treated with such disregard. I am thankful for the valuable experiences and lessons learned, and the opportunity to have worked with some truly fantastic people.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Halifax, NS – 17 August 2017
Being strapped to a phone and desk all day isn't good for anyone. While management doesn't listen to their staff regarding the day to day deployment of products BlackBerry threw away their reputation and the staff suffered for it.

I loved working at BlackBerry, they have a fantastic culture and respect for employees, also the workplace is the most dynamic I have ever worked in. I enjoyed my work there and I felt the results I got were greatly appreciated. Constant feedback was also a great motivator.

Work culture is great but it is difficult to find a job for full time as there is no vacancy. Overall, it is a great place to work as a co-op. The co-workers are so great and willing to help anytime you need them.
