    I worked at Motorola Mobility part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The team that I belonged to was great team. The chemistry among us was amazing. The low to mid level managers encouraged and participated in team bonding activities. The most enjoyful work place for me so far.

    Cons

    no formal training if you are working on new stuffs. Need to ask around although they all are willing to help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    promotions never came.

    Pros

    Great incubator for technologists and engineering talent. Good people who are smart and hardworking.

    Cons

    Hyper competitive mobile category requires one clear focused strategy. Lack of business planning. Too many products chasing too few opportunities to breakthrough the clutter. Lack of focus on delivering products that meet unmet or unarticulated consumer needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place fewer bets on bigger opportunities to deliver huge leap in utility and value for consumers.
