I have been working at Motorola Mobility full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

-- Things moving in right direction after merger
-- CEO's strategies and directives seem very promising
-- They are treating employees much better now

Cons

-- We have been hit with layoffs year after year and the lack of job security is very stressful
-- They are moving the company to downtown Chicago next year

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Economic uncertainty is a fact of life now, but you need to find some way to control the budget so that employees are not in constant fear of layoff. This is terrible for morale.

    Motorola has been slowed down by siloed hardware teams, too much turnover, and last minute execution.

    A pretty good place to goof off at, and the donuts are great.

    I have been working at Motorola Mobility full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great pay, great time off, dress code is casual, dealing with customers is a blast.

    Cons

    Parking is lousy, benefits are just ok, and it's a long drive. The management sometime micromanags you too much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micromanaging so much, and give me back my red stapler.
