RIM’S Co- CEO’s Are On Canada’s Top 100 Richest Canadians

With a combined net worth of $21.34 Billion (wrap your head around that), Mike Lazaridis and James Balsillie both find themselves in the top 100 of richest Canadian’s. The list was compiled by Canadian Business Magazine, be sure to check it out.

Unfortunately for Lazaridis and Basillie though, their net worth and place in the top 100 has dropped since last year. Currently at number 51, last year Lazaridis was number 24. Basillie is number 56, last year at number 26. The combined net worth dropped by 8.7% since this time last year. But don’t worry about them, they can wipe their tears with hundred dollar bills.

    Don’t blame CEO, they want RIM win.

    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.

    So don’t blame CEO, some of their VPs and VPs’ expert generate terrible culture and self destruct political environment.
