Looks like I got out of BlackBerry just in time - they're going to nearly halve the company next, and all those redundancy cheques will put a huge strain on cash flow I would imagine. As bad as losing your job is - and the inconvenience in my case of having to move continent yet again - my redundancy payment from BlackBerry was extremely generous, so much so I need not work (arguably, if it were not for the baby on the way) for three months or so and I very much doubt they can be as generous when firing nearly half the company! My best thoughts go out to my former colleagues and coworkers, I have been thinking of you.
