Pros

Motorola's diverse, global workforce is fantastic. Pay and benefits are good, though they'll work you till your dead.

Cons

Bungled, bureaucratic processes and risk-averse culture stifles creativity. You can't even buy a cellphone without begging 10 faceless bureaucrats to withhold their vetoes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit now, before they find out you're incompetent.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, world-class IT and great opportunities for development especially at the entry-level. Career progression opportunities are clearly defined, salary scales are transparent. Career development courses in project management and various design disciplines are offered at Motorola University. Full tuition reimbursement are offered if the education being pursued is related to your field.

    Cons

    If your business unit is not performing you can expect massive layoffs and cost-cutting efforts. Morale has suffered over the last few years due to the poor performance of the cash cow unit (cellphones) which has beaten down the stock price and affected other business units.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some long term vision for the company as opposed to going for short term gains. Hire some competent marketing people to understand what consumers want, and do a better job of marketing new products. The "Motorola" brand is suffering, it needs to be rebuilt from the ground up.

    Pros

    Good engineering company. This is a company that prides in doing a solution end to end by itself. So, it is a good engineering company.

    Cons

    The pride in doing everything itself is also the downfall of Motorola. It does not make sense to make everything itself, but recognize where to spend money in, For example, making cellphones again and again, is not value added, but adding features, services, applications is. The company fails to see the big picture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wear a bigger hat, think outside the box. Look at your competitors, and wake up every morning with an intention of beating the competition.
