Other Employee Reviews for Motorola Mobility

  1. Its not that bad in some sectors in Motorola

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Career Opportunities
    • Comp & Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Schaumburg, IL
    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Schaumburg, IL
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Balance between corporate and private life. Large, complex, distributed projects. Also there is a lot of space for improvements :). Very good atmosphere in my project (and many projects that i see around).

    Cons

    Legacy technologies. Not a software company - its not focused on software as it should be. Design is not everything, its the functionality that currently is the sweet spot. Not that innovative as used to be some time ago. Lack of clear leadership both in technology and management area. Previous CTO was driving a seamless mobility vision, that somehow was never brought to the market. In light of recent announcement about planned company split there is some kind of uncertainity in the air. Its hard to focus sometimes on your day-to-day work.

    Advice to Management

    Do the right things, not neccesarily cost driven. Eliminate warring tribes inside company. Walk the talk. Focus on the long term strategy and do not try just to find a next RAZR like silver bullet.


  2. Is this it?

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Career Opportunities
    • Comp & Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - IT Manager in Schaumburg, IL
    Current Employee - IT Manager in Schaumburg, IL
    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Motorola as a global company with great diversity has a lot of great people and offers great (short-term) opportunities. Despite an increasing number of process challenges an individual is still able to make a difference.

    Cons

    Very concerning is Motorola's uncertain future. The fact that top level management unable to inspire or communicate a vision results in too many excellent people leaving the ship.

    Advice to Management

    Transform while it is still possible, R&D is our future - ditching Motorola labs is short sighted. Did you ever consider that reducing severance packages give even less motivation to hold out with this company?
