    I worked at Research In Motion full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The wealth of knowledge and experience there to learn from is amazing. Not only did I meet and work with some of the smartest people in the industry, but they were always willing to share their knowledge with those around them.

    Cons

    Like any large enterprise business, some things were slow on the uptake, yet other things were painstakingly obviously needing quick changes to make it in the economic downturn that was taking shape. Unfortunately, straight from the top there was a lack of desire to make the changes that were necessary for the success of the business until it was too late and the company image had been damaged.

    Advice to Management

    Look to other tech giants for marketing strategies. Not enough marketing and advertising has been done for the products that are available. This alone can and most certainly will turn around the public perception of the company.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Research In Motion as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Got to work on software that millions of people use on a daily basis and had the opportunity to create major features. Amazing team of developers and testers Best co-op experience

    Cons

    Location is really terrible if taking the bus. Not enough parking if coming in later in the morning, probably not the case anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees equally, not give preference one team over another. The whole deal with some teams getting catered lunches every day while others not allowed to was ridiculous.
