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

    Pros

    Top rated employer - year after year. Great benefits: Salary, vacation, health care, long / short term disability, education, you name it. Offers all the perks and industry standard or better. Seriously. None better. Promotability: You can WORK your way up the ladder. Color blind: Minorities, women, etc are all n LEADERSHIP roles, not just not free from discrimination. Also, as important, minority status will not put you in a LEADERSHIP role. You earn it like everyone else does. Owned by Google: You'll be working with THE 800# gorilla in the room. Ability to partner with another highly rated company on cutting edge technology is at your fingertips.

    Cons

    This is NOT your (great) (grand) father's Motorola. The days where an employee was GALVANIZED (not able to be fired except with CEO review) are long part of our past. Performance is the name of the game today. Be at work, be ready to work, and be able to work on the next generation stuff. If you're not into the latest software, hardware, technology, etc - you'll not be working here long. You're here to work and work hard. Company is in flux. Mass layoffs are commonplace. That said, the company continues to do the "right" thing by the employees even during unfortunate times.

    Advice to Management

    Google is the new young dog on the field. They're successful. They're smart. They're agile. They've got energy. They've got some very deep pockets. That said, they've never (really) made a physical device and put it to market. The old dog (Motorola) can be taught new tricks, but don't discount the experience of those who may be a bit long in the tooth. No one knows it all.

    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Motorola was a great company to work for in the late 1990s and early 2000s before the Galvin's lost control. They truly cared about their employees and wanted people to work there till they retired. To be part of the company family.

    Cons

    After the Galvin's left power the company started a step decline and was in continuous layoff mode that never ended. Even after the breakup and purchase by Google they still struggle to be profitable and it is hard to see how they will turn it around. Like most of the telecom industry seems like another sad story and ending to a US powerhouse company.

    Advice to Management

    Make the end swift and stop dragging it out.
