    Pros

    Motorola Solutions, Inc. (MSI), a solid company has been around since the early 1900's. It's name is one of the top ten recognized name brands in America. It's staffed by loyal and hard driven employees who work hard to keep the reputation valuable. Employees are well paid and rewarded for their efforts. The working conditions are high and virtual workplace conditions are provided.

    Cons

    As with any company market force take their toll on employees who work hard to capture and keep old and new business alive. Through no fault of their own, this sometimes results in loss of business with the resulting impacts of staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on doing what you're doing to keep the highly respected name of Motorola one of the premier companies in the world.

    Pros

    Ability to work from home, vacation or paid time off starts at 4 weeks for developers. Healthy training budget, training gets approved fairly easily. Interesting projects. Ability to work with teams from all over the world who are technically sharp and competent.

    Cons

    The company should invest in newer technologies and lead the market on innovations. Why the company hasn't invested more on Artificial Intelligence when it already has all the know how for voice processing and the ability to attract talent. The company should invest in drones, robotics, AI, wearable electronics for public safety.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in newer technologies and lead the market on innovations. Bring in new employees and lead the market again.

    I worked at Motorola Solutions

    Pros

    Telecommuting, benefits, people - all great! Telecommuting is almost the entire culture. Most telecommuters are treated just like in office people, and since many teams are global, there is a sense that everyone is in the same situation - not in an office building but at home. This is a very strong component to the benefits of working at MSI.

    Cons

    It is a challenge to get ahead. There are many, many, many Reductions in Force (everyone knows what "the list" is, and no one wants to be on it!) Probably the hardest thing is to be stuck in a niche and then not have the opportunity to advance.

    I worked at Motorola Solutions

    Pros

    Everyone is incredibly nice & goal oriented. A team oriented culture is promoted and fostered with meetings & debriefings. Great experience overall. I definitely learned more from the individuals I worked with rather than the materials I worked on.

    Cons

    Many of the individuals I worked with resigned after my internship ended... Not sure if that was a red flag or what?
