    I worked at BlackBerry full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Used to have great autonomy to drive business results. It was the greatest job I ever had and had so much fun. The effort put forth across the team was collaborative and the end result was amazing.

    Cons

    Senior management lost sight of the competition. RIM missed the boat and is now suffering. I wish I could go back to what it was 3 years ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unfortunately, it's too late I think. RIM will still exist at some capacity but the glory days are over. Thorsten is doing a great job but he was dealt a brutal hand.
