Research-In-Motion has been on a continuous downward spiral for quite some time. Ever since Apple’s iPhone and Android smartphones gained traction, RIM took an arrow to its knee and has been failing in the smartphone market. This has naturally taken a toll on the company’s profits as well as its workforce.


When it comes to workforce, RIM had been faced in the past with no choice but to launch thousands of layoffs to bring down company’s quarterly losses. It seems that RIM is still on that road and isn’t coming around any time soon.

During July last year, RIM sacked a whopping 2000 employees, who accounted for nearly ten percent of the company’s total workforce. Now, it is being reported that the company may be planning to lay off another 2,000 employees this year. The sacking may happen some time in June, before the current quarter ends for RIM.

According to a source who claimed about the coming layoffs, “RIM has about 16,500 employees worldwide now. That number will be down to 14,500 before the summer’s over. … 14,500 or less.” Moreover, the layoffs will happen all across the company, in all divisions and departments. RIM’s new CEO has been trying hard to bring about the company and take it out of the financial crisis it is currently treading in.

Naturally, RIM’s fate depends greatly on how the world responds to BB10 once it finally comes out. And until the time that happens, RIM will have to go forth with employee lay-offs to be sustainable.

    RIM has strange culture and self distruct political environment.

    In RIM if a new hired person figure out major problem and introduce efficient approach, both manager and his buddy group member will proof their wrong approach works. just like someone point out driving a car is right way, pushing a car is wrong way, then both manager and his buddy group member will hate you, and proof that 3 person can also move the car by pushing it. cheating email will be sent to some vice president, saying like: see, the car moving, pushing a car is a natural part of the process, in order to deny new hired contribution of introducing skill of drive a car, they have to deny merit of driving a car.

    It is very strange company culture and strange company political environment, it promote stealing and cheating skill. RIM’s management may be a typical instance in MBA course.

    This culture deny or steal hardworking team members’ contribution/innovation, generate strange political environment, destroy RIM.
