"BlackBerry is a good company with great product for a long time they are the defacto standard of mobile communication. Working there was a great learning experience however until they can find a way out of the current economic turmoil the working condition will continue to degrade. However, I do believe BlackBerry will find success in the business software and enterprise space and return to profitability and innovation some day."

"Great company with good people. But the current market dynamics associated with the company have had downward pressure on the morale. Overall I'd say it was a great place to work, but I'd advise against joining up there until the future of the organization becomes more clear."
