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 Management

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

    Pros

    Google has started to instill some of it's culture into Motorola, which isn't a bad thing. Teams are being challenged to reduce process, eliminate waste, and focus on executing what matters. The overall direction makes sense but it's hard to know if what's being communicated is truly is direction that Google is taking the company.

    Cons

    Since the acquisition, Google has done multiple rounds of layoffs and morale is low. There is an emerging "us versus them" culture as more Googlers are being brought into the business. There is also still a lot of uncertainty about the future of the company after years of eroding market share and poor financials.

    Advice to Management

    More needs to be done to retain good people and weed out non-performers. Also, internal advancement below the senior leadership level is non-existent and has been that way for years.


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

    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 Management

    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.
