    I have been working at Motorola Solutions full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Motorola (now Motorola Solutions) is a world class technology company which has been the number one in its technology area in the US and worldwide for many years. It has stood for cutting edge technology combined with rock-solid performance for mission critical communications. It has been, in the past a great place to work. And the work made you feel great for the lives you saved every day.

    Cons

    Current management seems to believe we can "shrink our way to greatness" a proposition I have seen disproved over and over. They pontificate "if everybody own it, nobody owns it" then begin homogenizing the various product lines into one big mish-mash, which "everybody" will own, forgetting what they just said. It is still a good place to work, but no longer a "safe" employer when they get the next "lay-off" bug under ther wigs. Oddly this last time they laid off young recent hires who were showing great promise for the future of the company, as well as more expensive "old timers" who are the institutional memory of the comapny. I believe they have emraced "change for the sake of change" forgetting Richard Demming's proofs that changing things "just because" always makes things worse. Fortunately, if I go in the next layoff I am at almost full retirement age, and in any case will be retiring before they have time to ruin a great comapany completely and make it "just another" company, though that is where they are headed. If you come to work here, don't plan on getting your 30 year or 40 year awards. Those are still being given out, but a lot of people coming up on them were laid off in three rounds in this last year. Still a better than average employer, as long as the job lasts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your heads screwed on tight. Most of you are a bunch of MBAs who couldn't do the "grunt" level work of this company, but you just get "management crazy". As I said above, Richar4d Demming , demigod of Quality proved to all engineers that changing things, without knowing exactly what and WHY you are making the change is always going to make any problem worse instead of better. You have decided to "CHANGE EVERYTHING" at once without any rhyme or reason in a lot of cases. All your business school graduates need to remember the old chestnut "those who can do, those who can't teach". Just because somebody told you "so-and-so" in grad school doesn't make it "so" in the real world.
