    Pros

    It is more open than Apple, as in you are free to talk to and ask your colleagues what they are doing most of the time - so you got the chance to learn stuff outside of your area. It is big enough a company to have experts in most of the fields, so a lot of great people to learn from.
    Headquarter is in Chicago, which the cost of living is pretty low, considering it is the 3rd biggest city and the downtown is quite happening, with great public transportation system. A lot of things to explore. Most other hardware engineering companies are usually in the suburbs, which can be pretty boring - but Motorola is in the heart of downtown.

    Cons

    Since the company is doing just alright, not like Apple which is making obscene profit, the salary, bonus, benefits and perks is not as great.
    Even though they have done a lot to energize the company, it is still a pretty old company. The average age is higher than the younger company in the west coast for sure.

    Advice to Management

    I know it is not easy to have an amazing product idea or to stand out in such a competitive market. But that is what the company has to figure out and focus on.

    Pros

    Great innovation, products you can really stand behind and want to use yourself, setting new standards for the industry.

    Cons

    Company still loses money quarterly so they are extremely cautious how the money is spent. Little investment in new opportunities and their personnel.

    Advice to Management

    Look more for your own people, they are the ones going the extra mile for this company
