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

Pros

Exciting to develop leading edge Android smartphones. Intelligent, hard working coworkers. Good benefits.

Cons

The cellular industry as a while is a roller coaster ride. Good years were like winning the lottery in terms of bonuses and morale. Bad years were times of big layoffs and working lots of overtime to survive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If Motorola Mobility was still independent, there would be something to say. But all the senior leadership was let go by Google, so who knows what's next?

    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Got to work with a large number of incredibly smart and nice people. It was a great company to grow in with lots of education, both real world and "school". Company offers a great benefits package and competitive salaries.

    Cons

    Over the last several years, there were a number of down-size and restructuring events. There was a constant stress that it could happen to you at any moment. There often seemed to be very little reasoning to who or what groups were removed and with every restructure, it became more difficult to get your job done. A tense and difficult environment. I was there under Google for a short time, hopefully some of that is improving for those still there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When eliminating jobs or segments, give some guidance as to how that "role" is to be filled or what the plan is, to those who are still in the company.
