Pros

Part of Google now so hidden behind their financial performance.
No longer forced to keep up with HW spec based product or Android release cycle.
Join Google instead and take a rotation to Moto.

Cons

Very different from Google - culture, politics, perks, people, although mgmt would like to think they are the same.
The influx of Googlers creating a tiered culture. Those that are from Google have visibility, trust and air-time with the new leadership.
Moto considered mid-western, lazy (IMO) and lacks IQ.

Advice to Management

give Moto people an equal seat at the table. Else you will loose bright people.

    Pros

    Good company with decent pay and benefits. Use to be a market leader in cell phones. When things were rolling along good it was a good place to work.

    Cons

    Decaying, bloated leadership. Maybe the Google takeover can turn it around. To much politics and waste leaving too many "chiefs" and not enough "indians" to do the work to produce good products.
