Pros

Great benefits. Interesting work, at times. Job security.

Cons

Big, lumbering company. Lots of process, that doesn't seem to have much effect on making a quality product. Poor performance by Mobile group has lead to poor bonuses, delays in raises, layoffs, even in other divisions. Little funding for R&D, only concern is short-term revenue. Not enough people to get things done. Can't fill the spots just from attrition, let alone to grow a team. Unfortunately I couldnt think of any more positives, and I need to get to 100 words, so I'm just going to type a few more things here. There.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hurry up and spin off Mobile Devices.

    Pros

    Motorola has been a great work place where you can find virtually every opportunity to grow and explore many different field of engineering, project management, marketing, and management. Also, it's really flexible work place where family time is emphasized as much as performance at work.

    Cons

    Lack of vision from the senior leadership has been ruining Motorola over the years. As an 80 year old company and the founder of the wireless industry, Motorola should have been solid number 1. However, greedy leaders with no long term vision have taken advantage of decent hard-working engineers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Again, vision. Long term vision. Senior managers are working for shareholders. However, company is about people. They should understand that.
