Former Employee - Software Engineer in Libertyville, IL

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

Pros

If you are a foreign worker on an H1-B and you need your green card, this may be ok for you. If you want to work long hours with questionable acknowledgement this is for you. It is probably ok for new grads to get some experience in the workforce.

Cons

There has been a history of working long hours to compensate for poor management decisions. This has improved since goggle has purchased the company and I suspect it will continue to improve.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up with the Google management style, this appears to be working! The old Mot did not understand 'managed by data' and frequently ignored the data if it meant they could get an additional bonus by looking the other way.
