Pros

Great work life balance and very technical team members working on the latest in technology

Cons

With the constant restructuring there has always been a lack of opportunity for upward mobility in ones career.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow your star performers opportunities and mentor them accordingly. Alot of great talent leaves the organization due to lack of career growth.

    I have been working at Motorola Mobility

    Pros

    Still have opportunities to work with leading (but not bleeding) edge technology. Good work-life balance, generous paid time-off, decent benefits for now.

    Cons

    More technology work is being sent off-shore within the company, and outsourced to other companies. Remaining technical staff is becoming more project management oriented. No raises or 401K match for the past two years due to poor financial performance of mobile devices division has destroyed morale across the company. Traditional pension plan was also frozen removing any incentive for long term employees who were still in the plan to remain with the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees need a more generous compensation package, otherwise they will be leaving in droves when the economy turns around and the opportunity presents itself.
