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.

    Pros

    The people make the place and there is definitely a lot to learn in this exciting industry.

    Cons

    All of the changes with the takeover have really made the workplace difficult. A lot of layoffs and it has taken a big affect on morale. Plus the new management is not listening to it's employees, which makes working relationships complicated. Also, the work-life balance can be difficult, because it's a fast-paced industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start making decisions and sticking with them instead of flip-flopping every week. Employees are working tirelessly to fulfill your needs, so please listen to them when they explain why processes will or won't work.
