I have been working at Motorola Mobility full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Working for Motorola was a source of pride. The co-workers were like family

Cons

Headquarters treated the locations outside of Chicago as if they did not know what they were doing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have faith in your employees, the majority of time they know what they are doing. Due to managements poor leadership, Motorola lost it's edge

    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.

    Former Employee - Senior Staff Engineer in Marlborough, MA

    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time (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.
