    Pros

    - Great and talented people. Cross-functional work is fun and rewarding
    - Developing cutting edge products that push the way people communicate with each other in this world
    - Always something new to work on, due to the fast paced nature of the job

    Cons

    - Tough competitive environment, not a given that they will be able to stay in the game
    - Motorola is shrinking under new management before hoping to grow someday in the future (has been shrinking for years)

    Advice to Management

    Deliver on promise of innovative key products and really market and back them up with scale to start competing back against Samsung and Apple.


  2. A once great company, can Google resurrect her?

    Pros

    Motorola Inc developed some of the marque mobile phones that lead the cellular phone industry in the early years with the Startac and Razor.
    Additionally, large corporations such as Motorola do a pretty good job at retaining employees with very good benefits.

    Cons

    Poor foresight in the future of smartphones lead to the down fall of this once dominate company in the mobile handset business.

    Advice to Management

    Motorola Mobility after being spun off from Motorola Inc was purchased by Google in 2012. I expect the new management under the direction of Google will focus on improving the smartphone experience and the very successful Droid OS. I expect some innovative and new products to be coming soon from Googlerola experiment.
