    I have been working at Motorola Mobility

    Pros

    Motorola Solutions has long and proud history of innovation in the public safety related communications products. The company has a great work culture. People have great respect for each other.

    Cons

    Company needs to accelerate innovation and promote more creativity from within. Complacency among some of its groups will be detrimental for the company. It needs to be much ahead of its competitors to retains its market share.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to create new programs that encourages and promotes innovation in both business models as well as in grassroots technology.
