No opinion of CEO

Pros

1. Comfy working environment 2. Teams communicate a lot, and people are usually willing to help 3. Immediate superiors do listen to advices, even from co-ops and interns

Cons

RIM tends to acquire smaller companies to boost their software product line, and hire tremendous amount of junior developers/co-ops/interns to maintain the code base until these products fail to compete with others. In short RIM spends bucks to acquire companies rather than hiring hardcore devs, resulted in poor innovation.

Advice to Management

Balance more toward human resources, rather than technology acquisition, especially for software R&D
