I have been working at Motorola Mobility as a contractor (more than a year)

Pros

Great People who are focused on the Company being successful...fun products - disruptive in the market-place.

Cons

Uncertainty of Lenovo acquisition...fear of dilution of Motorola Mobility Brand....Motorolan's have huge pride in & for their company...to erase / loose the brand would be another US Industry tragedy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember "Made int he USA"? That holds sway in the US marketplace....let's not loose it with by being structured incorrectly in the marketplace.

    I have been working at Motorola Mobility full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart people, interesting projects and cutting edge technology if you pick the right group. Good work-life balance, flexible work schedule. Convenient access to VTA light rail (public tram) and CalTrain. Motorola products are on the upswing and the company has a promising future.

    Cons

    Staff are anxious about the Lenovo buyout and what it will be like post-Google. Some people abuse the work from home perk, and still plenty of dead weight. Managers have their favorites and you would be disadvantaged in performance reviews if you're not on their list.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk around and know your ground troops instead of always relying on your direct reports. They filter the truth you know. Also, the flexible work schedule is a valued benefit and employees with families highly prize it. Don't drop it otherwise you'll lose folks like me.
