Current Employee - Marketing Manager in Horsham, PA

I have been working at Motorola Mobility full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

The folks below director-level work hard through a challenging environment to get the job done. There is a sense of camaraderie and people are ethical and professional. There can be (depending on your manager) a strong sense of work/life balance.

Cons

Organization, team, direction and middle management change constantly. There is an inordinate amount of politics across all levels. There is no sense of certainty in the products being developed, roadmap, appropriateness to market, and little direction is given from upper management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring in some new blood and start listening to the employees who are out there interfacing with the customers every day.

    Current Employee - Senior Director in Libertyville, IL

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

    Pros

    History of the company
    Depth of engineering technical knowledge
    Benefit program and salary scales are competitive

    Cons

    Transition to Google culture is "assumed" without any training or change management effort
    Layoffs continue and no one is safe (except the Google folks, GMAP'ers, etc.)
    Current team has to shoulder the burden of work of those laid off
    Decisions are firm for a week (or less), then are iterated, leading to a lot of wasted effort

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep going forward with the strategy, but understand that Libertyvile and other "remote" outposts outside of Sunnyvale, are also crucial to the success of this venture.

    Pros

    Some very bright people. Great history. Google might still be savior.......

    Cons

    Unclear why Google bought Motorola. May have become to small and irrelevant to compete with Apple and Samsung. New Google people have much to learn. Likely to repeat past mistakes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get on with transition plan before consumers (and loyal customers) forget you.
