I have been working at Motorola Mobility full-time for 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.

    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time for more than 5 years

    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.
