You'll get a lot of responsibility and make your own features, but the culture is a bit dull. Not very diverse and not really any company events.

Worked here for my first co-op term as a QA Analyst manually testing websites. The work itself wasn't super interesting but the hours were really flexible and the team members were really nice. It was a good learning experience for my first time working though.

I was very lucky with the mentor I got at BlackBerry - he was very helpful and I learned a lot from him but the biggest issue is that there is not a lot of work to do in the first place. I sat around making myself look busy for at least 50% of the term and the work I was doing did not seem very meaningful. Kanata is a pretty boring place - would not recommend in the winter unless if you bring a car. The bus service needs work, it's hard to get around, and there's not much to do.

I worked with the enterprise solutions department. There's a lot of smart people at BlackBerry that provide excellent mentorship. There's no real perks/benefits to working there. There are plenty of other co-ops for you to socialize with. Overall, it's a good place to gain experience.

The people there were friendly and always willing to help. Strong mentorship from one of the senior developers there who was always willing to help. Only downsides were that direction of the product is unclear and the salary was low for the amount of work that was being done.

Had a fantastic mentor, and a great opportunity to contribute to a new tool. Office was a bit depressing with the empty cubicles, but they're moved everything to the buildings up at Northfield now. Work is about as hectic as you let it be - there's always more work in this transition period.

I really liked this term because I got into mobile programming through what I learned at Metroland. I had a wonderful mentor who really helped me learn a lot. The pay was not good though so I would recommend this as a 1st or 2nd co-op term just for the experience.

Working in the now defunct BB10 web browser team while it was on its last legs was a great experience. The team was wonderful, I was assigned a mentor/supervisor who took me under their wing and taught me a lot, but I found out that the work wasn't for me. I was doing a lot of testing and automation, which isn't really my thing but it might be for you!
