I worked at Motorola Mobility

Pros

* very sharp people to work with
* flexible work environment
* very interesting work up until 2007 or so

Cons

* extremely top heavy organization
* senior management is cluless about how to run a business; too many examples here- look no further than its lost leadership in an industry that it created-
* accomplishments not recognized

Advice to ManagementAdvice

* talk from time to time to real engineers and find out what's going on instead of relying on yes men that you usually surround yourself with
* embrace change, not fight it; learn to recognize game-changing events/technology

    Pros

    Development in some of the latest technologies

    Cons

    10 teams would be working on the same project. More time spent on determining which team has the best technology rather than choosing a solution and moving forward with it.

    Doesn't Recommend
