Pros

Work Life balance
Great location.
Good benefits

Cons

Management is bad.
Engineers are not treated with respect.
Jobs are being outsourced heavily and only product management is being done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give Engineer the role/job that they want to do. Don't force them to do the work that they don't like to do.

    I worked at Motorola Mobility

    Pros

    Good working relationships among peers & co-workers. Developing trust first was key. Pay was significantly above average for similar positions elsewhere in the marketplace. Management is flexible with altered work schedules, work-from-home, PTO, so long as work gets done. PTO is very liberal (one lot of days for personal, sick, and vacation time) especially after 8 plus years of service.

    Cons

    Much change has occurred since the era of Sanjay Jha and his management influence. Layoffs hit hard and deep over the past few years separating a lot of talent with many years of service. Sense of teamwork and cooperation has been replaced with more of a 'knowledge is power' approach, closely guarded to keep one's job.
