16 months there

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Waterloo, ON (Canada)

Prosgood compensation.
good teammates.
good CEO.
good place to start your career.

Consfrom managerial to Senior VP levels, they all just care about money, not the company, not the products, not even the customers.

a Senior VP said RIM doesnt need any advertisement, just like Boeing 747 doesnt need any

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
