I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The talent pool of coworkers at Motorola was a major contributing factor to job satisfaction. Working with teams of responsible individuals enabled significant accomplishments.

Cons

The most significant downside to working at Motorola is the work/life balance issue. When you are engaged with global development teams, 10 to 12 hour days are the norm. Conference calls at either 7am or 8pm, 3-4 times a week are required to successfully manage development programs.

    I have been working at Motorola Mobility full-time (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.
