I worked at Motorola Mobility

Pros

Work with very nice, competent people. Respect for people isn't just a slogan. Interesting projects in every part of the company. Occasionally some awesome creations. Less "warring tribes" mentality as tribes keep being ejected.

Cons

Frequent tendency to be insular at all levels ... reinventing the wheel, NIH, lack of visionary leadership. Lay-offs, sell-offs, spin-offs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invent something really new. Not marketing hype new. I mean new.

No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Motorola Mobility

    Pros

    Salary reasonable
    Plenty of space to spread out as everyone has been laid off
    Good engineers trying to do their best for the company

    Cons

    Terrible management philosophy.
    Promotions near zero
    no matching 401K
    no pay increases
    no innovations for network solutions, all third party hardware solutions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop cutting off products without the right amount of R&D. You cannot develop good products if you don't put the work in up front.
    Get right of the ridiculous amount of middle management dross.
    Understand engineering is cheaper outsourced, but don't completely rip US talent apart
