Pros

Used to be market leader in smart phone. Although it is sinking, the Blackberry brand remains respectful.

Cons

There are 2 CEOs and they do not manage the company effectively.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you have made the wealth over the years, please step aside and retire. We need some seasoned, and well-respected crop of senior management team to undo all the wrong.

    Pros

    - Large company benefits package is good
    - Good industry sector to work in
    - Pay is OK
    - Still some good people left

    Cons

    - Fallen on bad times and getting worse
    - Blame culture / finger pointing
    - Leadership in denial, no strategy
    - Internal feuding out of control
    - Far too "top heavy" no real career growth opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Culling thousands of worker bees fixes this quarters problem but clearing out the morass of SVPs, VPs, Directors is probably the only way to save RIM. At the moment it's deckchairs on the Titanic.... Do something before somebody does it for you.

    Pros

    Easy to have work life balance.

    Cons

    Exec management is clueless about the Valley. As a result, it's hard to get things done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire your entire legal team. They have no interest in the good of the company or in getting things done. They simply want to make sure you don't get sued.
