  • Employee Discount(87 comments)

    Great discount plans with some brands

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off(29 comments)

    Vacation above average(not sure how it is now for new hire but back in the day, when it was RIM, one started with 3 weeks vacation, + one week after 5 years, plus another after 10 years of service), paid, of course. Quite decent when it comes to taking vacation days.

  • Life Insurance(15 comments)

    It's a smaller amount for regular employees, but better than nothing.

The benefits are definitely good - health, dental, some life insurance, possibly stock options. Vacation above average(not sure whether they've changed this, but back in the day, when it was RIM, one started with 3 weeks vacation, + one week after 5 years, plus another after 10 years of service). Used to match employee's RRSP contribution.

The company offers 4% vacation pay and days off to the full time employees. The employees get onsite massages, they have activities and free snacks and inexpensive cafeteria food. They also offer good dental and vision coverage and good discounts with partners

The benefit is about average, with VIP related to personal and company's performance. Unfortunately the company performance is not good recent years.
