"BlackBerry is a very strong technical company. The biggest downfall is poor upper management that has been making bad decisions and is more worried about saving their own jobs than the life of the company."

Technical Analyst

"BlackBerry is a very reputable company in Canada, currently is focused on providing large-demographic based customer security solutions such as MDM tools, etc. and with the recent acquisition of Cylance they are now providing best in class Anti- Virus solutions for professional as well as the consumer market. My inclination to join this company was the dream I had in childhood to hold a BlackBerry device and own it with pride, well that couldn't be possible but I landed the opportunity to be part of my dream company and I have worked with my 200% effort and lead my lead in winning the CSAT competition for 2 months hosted quarterly, and also as we were taught to consider the customer as our main priority, I have never let down any expectations of customer from my side even if I had to work overtime. All in all, I had an amazing experience, and working with my manager and seniors closely helped me learn a lot about the job, the tech industry, and life as a whole."
