Once a technology giant, relegated to the dustbin

Software Engineer (Current Employee) Schaumburg, IL

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

ConsBig, 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 Senior ManagementHurry up and spin off Mobile Devices.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A good place to work for the right type of person

    Principal Staff Systems Engineer (Current Employee) Schaumburg, IL

    I have been working at Motorola Mobility


    Pros: Enterprise business (including two-way radio) is a consistent performer and a great place to learn new technologies as they are incorporated into our systems.… Cons: A mature organization getting bogged down in process controls. Six sigma quality focus leads to middle management doing things for the sake of metrics, not… Advice to Senior Management: Focus on the customer and not the bean counting.
