RIM Employee’s E-Mail To CEO

Blog Summary: (AI Summaries by Summarizes)
  • A Research in Motion (RIM) employee wrote an email to the CEO addressing the problems at RIM and why the company is on a downward spiral.
  • The email could apply to a lot of technology companies.
  • RIM responded to the email with a swing and miss.
  • More employees chimed in with their own letters to RIM.

I haven’t read a more poignant, thoughtful, and truthful E-mail to a CEO than this one. RIM has been on a downward spiral for years now and this Research in Motion employee really nails why it is happening to RIM. Although it addresses the problems at RIM, the E-mail could equally apply to a lot of technology companies and maybe even yours.

Update: RIM responded with a swing and miss and more employees chimed in.
