Pros

Great people who are very strong technically. Great products. Good benefits (medical, vacation, etc). Flexible working conditions (work from home, flexible hours).

Cons

Despite significant downsizing, organization remains siloed. Senior management retains high degree of control on most decisions. Too many of the mid and high level managers lack interest in resource management, making career development truly the employee's responsibility

Advice to Management

Take more big risks.

    Pros

    The salaries were OK to decent, there were good benefits (albeit ones that got weaker year by year) and the work when you got to actually get on and do it, was fun.

    Cons

    Motorola Mobility was always Google's red-headed stepchild. They always kept it at arms' length and treated the company and its employees as something they were embarrassed by, even as they disremembered it, laying off large chunks, selling off other chunks, and finally dumping the rest. Needless to say morale was not very good - how could it be when your corporate owners didn't like to think you existed.

    Advice to Management

    Have a strategy and be proud of what your people create - don't let a once proud name completely disappear under the new ownership.
