    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are extremely intelligent individuals working at Motorola. Every day is a learning experience.

    Cons

    Constant lay-offs and bad management has left Motorola with negligible market share and less than exciting products. Constantly stopping and starting programs. Lots of red tape and political...especially from the Libertyville location

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drive innovation. Reward staff that drives to do the right thing. Remove roadblocks and people who are there to better their own future.

    A great place to work if you have an engineering background, with many opportunities to advance and learn.

    I have been working at Motorola Mobility full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay is competitive with other engineering jobs.
    Benefits are very good, with many options.
    401k with company match, Portable Pension Plan (for new employees)
    Opportunities to work in various technical positions and learn new skiils.

    Cons

    Struggling to regain profitability, which means constant reductions in force.
    Very bureaucratic, which slows movement on projects and the ability to make a timely decision.
    Training is limited (both internal and external) due to the lack of profitability and the reductions in force adding to the workload of the remaining employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to reduce load to increase the ability of employees to have training. Put more thought into reductions in force, and the affect it has not only on the people that are let go, but on the remaining employees.
