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

Pros

- Flexibility
- Great people with lots of passion (at least those I interacted with)
- Good salaries, great benefits

Cons

- Unstable (too many reorganizations, layoffs)
- Too much work for each person's bandwith therefore a lot of stuff was dropped or done half ass
- Many evening meetings due to factory being overseas (as it is with most companies nowdays)
- Motorola University was limited.
- Some opportunities for advancement but not many

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As Motorola Mobility enters the Google era hopefully workload will be more balanced, in the past too many balls were being dropped because simply there was too much work assigned to each person to be able to handle everything, it wasn't until those dropped balls exploded that priorities were refocused.

    Motorola is a company that believes in teaching its employees the value\purpose of their products. LapDock was a hit!

    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great, products, services, and thinks ahead.

    Cons

    Need to promote the products, like Apple does to get the message across. Moto has been around for 80 yrs...Show it!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just put the product in the magazines, the consumer needs to know that they are the best! As mentioned the LapDock was a hit. What a way to use your handset, and plug it in to the LapDock and convert it into a Laptop!! No one else has it. It should have been promoted to the masses! What a miss.

    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.
