"Perks: FREE FOOD :D They're catering lunch (and dinner if staying late) for everyone working on bb10. Only temporary though, but an awesome perk. Responsibilities: Development of semi-low-level code (code that sits one level above the driver). Real development work.. not garbage work that full-time employees don't want to do. (Obviously this depends on your manager.)"

"Don't be fooled by RIM's current bad reputation or news, this Job would certainly teach you a lot of industry knowledge. RIMs environment is really good to learn new skills but in the end it also depends which team you land up working for. Perks: Overtime Dinners with a different place every day of the week!"

"Perks: All RIM employees get a corporate BlackBerry. The OS team regularly gets free food after meetings occur for higher ups (seemed to slow down near the end of term). negatives: Working through the reorganization really had a negative affect on the work being done. other: Team was very nice, gave you a project and said just go, (both good and bad.) If the reorganization was not occurring i feeling this position would have been much better"
