According to the Wall Street Journal, Rick Costanzo, will be leaving the company by early next year and Chris Wormald, head of BlackBerry M&A strategy, will be gone by the end of this month. Supposedly John Chen had everyone in a Town Hall meeting when he took over at told them that:
"Things are going to get worse before they get better," and that, "Not all of you will be here"
