I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time (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 Management

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.

    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    People are great to work with. Great sense of teamwork and problem solving ability.

    Cons

    Not very focused on long term direction of Home Business. Multiple Senior Leadership changes have convoluted the longer-term directional focus of the organization and the role it plays within Motorola Mobility

    Advice to Management

    Keep employees aware of longer term direction of Home Business.


  2. 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 (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 Management

    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.
