    Pros

    *Company loves students
    *Incredible group of like-minded, intelligent interns, and we had a blast
    *Work life balance - 40 hour work weeks (for me) and generally commitment based. Some of my
    friends worked more but never too much more that I saw
    *Nicest people ever. My whole team was great (the actual employees, not interns) and really supported me
    *Very competitive sallary for a internship
    *Free blackberry and full voice and data service while working for them

    Cons

    *Not the fast-paced environment some might be looking for in places like Google and Facebook
    *Don't get to keep Blackberry after internship :)

    Advice to Management

    Innovate. Apple and Google will take you down if you don't take some risks with your phones. Loved my internship though. Amazing experience. :)

    The management is very conservative on implementation of new technologies
    So you may end up working on stuff that most companies have already inplemented

    Advice to Management

    the management needs to make some hard decisions to keep RIM competitive in the long run. This would involve investing more in research for cutting edge technologies
