    Pros

    Professional company with training, medical benefits, 401K plan, great products and great people.

    Cons

    Because it's a large company, sometimes the red tape can get in the way of a quick response to client issues.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees.

    Pros

    Highest caliber of people (competency and character) imaginable!

    Cons

    Defocused organization, overlead by finance. Playing not to lose, rather than playing to win.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on few products and high-value markets only. Couple that with the true innovation that originally built Motorola as one of the greatest companies ever.

    Pros

    Strong leadership team, very collaborative environment, great products that are really starting to get momentum. Industry leading software team and getting Motorola first to market with Android plus adding new features that are really useful vs. gimmicks.

    Cons

    Lots of change - mostly in the right direction, but it's not for the faint hearted. It's sometimes hard to get things done, as some processes no longer work, having been built by people no longer with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Would be great to learn more about Lenovo's plans for the future. Keep shipping great products and everything else will fall into place.

    Pros

    Amazing company! you can learn a lot and work with amazing smart people. There are several projects that are challenging and help you to keep growing in your profession.

    Cons

    Too many changes lately. Its a really complicated situation when you are not stable. Like all the companies, its taking a while to get stable again and it will take a while after the Lenovo acquisition.

    Advice to Management

    Try to help the people grow and better themself.
