    Pros

    Great products, great innovation and lots of good culture brought over from Google.

    Cons

    Miniscule marketing budget inhibits awareness and driving purchase intent of the killer products. Very competitive space and not sure they have the funding to see this through.

    Pros

    Good benefits Nice environment Nice people Nice work/life balance

    Cons

    Not so agile. Some teams do apply agile methodologies, but it would depend on which group you work. Even on the agile teams, there are some high bureaucracy to get through with some processes.

    Advice to Management

    Need to strength the product management team. Be careful not to go back to old-Motorola slow changing organization.
