I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

With the acquisition by Google, I think there is a lot of potential going forward

Cons

The atmosphere was awful. Employees were living quarter to quarter due to potential layoffs resulting from poor sales. However, my review may not be fair for future employment since a great many managers have changed and the overall company direction is changing as well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not much to comment on since it will be a new company with Google. However, I do think things will improve.

    No business strategy communicated, no direction, poor directors that are not qualified for their jobs.

    I have been working at Motorola Mobility full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -benefits are good
    -nice, smart co-workers
    -learning opportunities

    Cons

    -executive team is disconnected/self focused and doesn't care about the employees
    -total 'boys club'-no females in senior level positions, no advancement for females
    -directors are known to bully and harass employees without recourse
    -layoffs are ALWAYS looming

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -be open with employees-there are so many intelligent, hard working people who want the company to succeed but run into walls because of senior management.
    -provide open communication on what direction the company is moving in
    -don't tell employees that the future is bright and 3 weeks later lay off 4000 people-be honest and show respect for employees.

    Former Employee - Senior Staff Engineer in Marlborough, MA

    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    1. Cutting edge technology.
    2. H1B sponsor.

    Cons

    1. Continuous downsizing kills the morale and hopes in the company's vision.
    2. The Top level management does not care about employees concerns. Those who raise their voice during a performance appraisal are those to be let go when a company restructuring is done and this happens every year because of shrinking profit margin and lack of proper vision.
    3. No recognition for innovation disclosures and publications.
    4. The entire company is in such a mess that it is a ticking time bomb ready to explode.
    5. Ask any employee of Motorola (above 10+ years) of experience. They will tell you how frustrated they are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher level management should own the responsibility in lack of vision and focus in meeting their goals and should not cut back on hard working resources who are committed to the employer for a very long time.
