Toxic and constricting organization
Senior Technical Solutions Manager (Former Employee) – San Mateo, CA – August 8, 2018
BlackBerry continues it's slow, but inevitable, decline. The work environment is extremely toxic - long work hours, micro-management, inadequate and inexperienced senior leadership, and no work-life balance. The Blame Game is strong here, especially in Sales.
Its a good place to work for 1-2 years if you plan to move on. The company is not a place I would choose to work without having a backup plan. Corporate leadership has no regard for employees as people - at BlackBerry, employees are treated like products; they are discarded without thought when profit numbers need to be propped up. We have been watching employee number shrink for the last three years, and the sales and stock price indicate that isn't going to slow anytime soon.
