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

Pros

There are a number of very smart people who work at Motorola, many smart engineers with a large variety of skills. They are willing to teach what they know and share their knowledge.

Cons

A top heavy layer of managers who spend most of their time in meetings discussing how things should be done and not actually getting things done. The company moves at a slower pace, so product turn around is lengthy and full of delays.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow Engineering teams more freedom to make decisions and create change instead of forcing processes that just seem to bog everyone down. If people work good together and produce effective results, do not think that splitting this people up will make many new teams that will be as effective.
