It was great experience to work with Motorola Solutions. I would love to work for them in the near future.

Procurement Intern (Former Employee)
Holtsville, NY

I worked at Motorola Solutions as an intern for less than a year

ProsSome of the best people to work with. Stress free environment. People are more than willing to help you with any problems you may have.

ConsThe intern program though structured does not educate the Interns about the company. Despite a few lectures conducted by various department heads within the company, very few interns actually understood how things worked in the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementEnsure better distribution of work within the company
