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 Management

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 worked at Motorola Mobility full-time (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 Management

    Not much to comment on since it will be a new company with Google. However, I do think things will improve.


  2. No business strategy communicated, no direction, poor directors that are not qualified for their jobs.

    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 Management

    -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.
