No opinion of CEO

Pros

Generally speaking, the work environment is extremely collegial with great interaction between engineers. Engineers tend to be extremely competent and experienced with lots to teach one another.

Cons

Management tends to be conservative in how they manage their employees - as though they are scared to let the engineers do what they think is best in terms of time-management, working from home, etc.

Advice to Management

Be more forthright in the vision for the company. Share doubts as well as aspirations so that "the little people" can help make those visions come true.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Average compensation. Generous vacation time, but you are always too behind schedule it off.

    Cons

    If you don't work over 50 hours a week you are a slacker. Incompetent senior management. Generous vacation time is more than offset by tons of unpaid overtime. The only motivational tool left is to threaten your job. Raises are only a memory.

    Advice to Management

    Stop threatening our jobs. Get the mobile devices business healthy. Treat the employees with respect and dignity. You can get away with being cheap now, but once the economy rebounds anyone worthwhile will be gone. You have given them no reason to stay.

    If you are working at a Motorola satellite location, the work culture will be totally different than parent company.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Motorola is a Technology company and have some really good engineers, the work is great.

    Cons

    Just like any other big company, lot of politics, you will be working for your immediate boss, if he or she is happy, you will have fun otherwise you are doomed. Changes of horizontal move within the company is very remote.

    Advice to Management

    There is a very fat layer of middle management that is preventing the innovative ideas to come out.
