    A once great company that is struggling to reinvent itself.

    Pros

    Great people at Motorola. Engineers are encouraged to grow and develop their skills. Their compensation seems higher than the industry average. Committed to designing world class phones. Motorola products are some of the highest quality in the industry.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be bad at times. Engineers better be ready to hop on a plane to China at a moments notice. Motorola Mobility has reduced itself to a commodity company. They are just designing the "box". Android does the software that means they have control over the user experience. Anyone out their can design the hardware and in most cases do it faster and cheaper.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look back to the IBM PC division. How long did they last when they let Microsoft do the software? IBM figured they could make the PC's better than anyone in the world. They never counted on the suppliers of the components and parts to be able to do it faster and cheaper. being number 5 in the industry does not give you access to the latest or best technologies.

    Pros

    Of all the companies I've worked for, Motorola was far and away the most technically oriented. Advanced engineers, technically oriented managers and was ahead of its time in quality assurance in the development programs. The benefits for pursuing education were also outstanding.

    Cons

    Never really knew what the upper management was thinking. It was hard to understand how your role fit into the longer term picture of our operations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The huge emphasis on 6 Sigma and quality control made it difficult to do some relatively simple tasks at time.
