    Pros

    Motorola Mobile Devices has good benfits, mostly good good career paths, very good diversity. The Cell phone industry has to be one of the most exciting industries to be in for the last 10 years.

    Cons

    Motorola is in a very tought spot, new competiion from apple, google, along with traditional sony/ericson, nokia, samsung, and LG. Difficult to see success. The organization is ineffective, decisions are only made at the very top, and lay offs continue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix your organization to be effective. Structure jobs so employees can make decisions and develop product that can contribute to and be proud of. Culture has become only top managment makes decsion so why bother. Ensure you reward hardwork, not just the employee who spend most of their time "managing up". Focus on consumer facing differentiation not technolgy.

    Pros

    Engineering Company with focus on emerging technologies. Flexible work schedule and good engineering talent to learn from. Well known company with history of innovations.

    Cons

    Recent Management politics, favoritism, fluctuating leadership, and lack of sustained innovations. Big gaps between breakthrough technology innovation in the company. Need to innovate faster or risk being overtaken by others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Motorola requires strong leadership and renewed focus on innovation. Recently we have been seeing this happen but much needs to be done to sustain the momentum.
