Zaman59 pointed out an interesting article in the forums that I thought was worth sharing. The Business Insider article is supposed to be from a rank and file RIM employee giving some insight (bullet point style) on what is currently going on at RIM. There is even a great conversation going on in the comments headed by Janet talking about how the QNX core compares with Android. We have no way to confirm if this is a true RIM employee but I have heard similar statements from many employees who are afraid to go on record.
My favorite point made by the employee is so true even if this is not coming from a RIM employee:
Morale isn’t broken, but there is a lot of legal bureaucratic processes that slow us down. You’d think we have more lawyers on hand will all the patent lawsuits in mobile. Anyway, time to execute or time to market is paramount for us, and we need to keep improving it. That’s what Balsillie was talking about on the recent earnings call when he said he wants things earlier.
I highly recommend checking out the rest of the statements made by the employee about how RIM is in it for the long haul and QNX is their savior over at Business Insider. It is also interesting to see their take on the co-CEO’s not doing the company service by doing interviews separately.
Let us know what you think!
