Pros

It used to be a great place to work with, great benefits and work atmosphere. A lot of it changed due the the crisis they are facing.

Cons

Company got behind the times, they had a good product, but made decisions that did not pay off. Very unstable place to work right now.

Advice to Management

I wish the company the best, even though I was just laid off in a weird manner. Hope BlackBerry 10 can get the company back in shape, and no more people have to lose their jobs.

    Pros

    Great perks, great people, competitive salaries. This is a great place to work, with lots of oppourtunity for learning, growth and movement within RIM.

    Cons

    Some duplication of effort, and a few too many "old school thinkers". Like most companies, its big enough to be slow at certain types of change, and some empire building. For the most part though, people work together.

    Advice to Management

    Break down the silos, listen to the front-line, and focus on innovating!

  2. Working at RIM as a coop has been very educational to me, especially in the electronics world.

    Pros

    -big company
    -good salary
    -exposed to different modern technology
    -good working environment
    Overall you get to work in a fast paced electronics company, if you like learning and also getting good pay, this would be a very good company for you.

    Cons

    team are full of young people, most of them don't stay for very long, so sometimes it's hard to get advice.
