I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Lot of talented engineers who worked very hard

Cons

Bosses higher up who did not have a vision and kept making decisions that are counter intuitive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Believe in what you do rather than changing the story everyday

    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time

    Pros

    *Good benefits (it was better in the past)
    *Skilled professionals, good work environment
    *Company is trying to attract top talent by moving its headquarters to downtown Chicago
    *Communication from upper management with the employees seems more open and frequent

    Cons

    *Some of the personnel brought over from Google do not understand the mobile industry especially as it relates to hardware
    *Execution at the mid-high management is not necessarily in sync with the vision pictured by upper management
    *Changes implemented after the Google take over were not totally logical leaving a lot of uncertainty

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    2013 execution will be key for the future of the company. Make sure you hear feedback from the "doers" and put people with the right skill set in the right places. International markets are different from the US, selling handsets is completely different from selling ads and carriers are still very relevant.

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

    Pros

    operates in most exciting industry on the planet - cool technology and lots of great engineers. Pays well and good package overall

    Cons

    marketing is weak and getting weaker post Google focus is still on engineering, long track record of CEO changes and lack of direction and understanding of its role in the world

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    focus, invest in marketing in the brand
