    Pros

    Technology, co-workers. Things were much better while Sanjay Jha was there.

    Cons

    Still too much senior management, Several Senior level managers hogging what little credit should be given to the underlpeople doing the real work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Forget Merchandise Mart. What were you thinking? Get some product sucesses first.

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

    Pros

    Nice weather pretty much the entire year.

    Cons

    NO, Zero, Kaput, NONE opportunities for younger talented engineers. If you are good or bad, nobody cares. It seems the only metric is the number of years you been sitting in front of a PC.
    Company is not able to identify, and recognize talent.
    NO pay based on performance.
    Too many senior engineers, very tired to think.
    I would not recommend anybody to join this company, but if you do, negotiate your entry salary pretty well, that salary will not move up anytime soon, no matter what you do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great job!
