I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time for more than a year

Pros

You can tell there was a time when this was a great company to work for. Valued its employees, compensated them well, had a good culture. When I first started there, I had a lot of fun and worked hard but never resented the effort put into my job because it all seemed worth it.

Cons

Over the past few years, it's been on the decline but the buyout by G really pounded the last nail into the coffin. Things fell apart, the acquisition was handled clumsily and with an "I'll just ignore what I don't like and it'll go away" approach, and people were treated like nameless assets instead of human beings.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have nothing without good people. Figure out how to show that you value the ones who are doing all the work.

    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time for 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?
