Good Engineers, Management Inept

Engineer (Current Employee)
Glasgow, Scotland (UK)

I have been working at Motorola Mobility

ProsGood engineering variety and well respected in the engineering community. Good rewards and very competitive package overall with excellent conditions and surroundings.

ConsThe industry is very cyclical and the whole work force depend on the r&d and npi teams doing a good job, which doesn't always happen.

Advice to Senior ManagementThey tended to adopt a dictatorial approach to mgmt and they were top heavy with managers. Having production managers then lead engineering teams was a very bad move.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
