Pros

Collaborative teams, good customer base, a lot of new talent. Strong installed base. Taking steps to become a key player once again.

Cons

Too little to late, have lost of lot of the Engineering and design talent that made us successful at one time. Always lagging a few steps behind the competition vs the times when Motorola was the leader and the innovator.

    Some great people, but abysmal upper management.

    Pros

    Motorola Mobility used to be an awesome place to work. Employees were treated with respect and dignity. The company used to pride itself with treating employees better than its competitors. However, changes in upper management have all but destroyed a once great company.

    Cons

    Extremely depressing environment. Employees only just tolerated. Example, the ever present layoffs count employees as "work units" as in: "first quarter, 1,500 work units released." A once wonderful company has been devastated by upper managers only concerned with guaranteeing their own multi-million dollar parachutes. The only money making strategy in the last five years has been to lay off thousands American workers every three months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Laying off 1,000+ workers per year and then giving multiple upper managers $10+ Million bonuses year after year for "saving money" is both unsustainable and despicable.
