    Pros

    Motorola's flexible time options are good and some groups have competent engineers and managers.

    Cons

    Management is "Darth Vader"-like. Only friends/politically-connected get promoted and wield their power to foster an atmosphere of "be-a-sheep-we-don't-want-you-to-think-too-much" and "don't-ask-questions". Communication between mgmt and engineers is negligible. No product planning and most employees are biding time till they get laid off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate to employees how they can contribute directly to the bottom line and engage them. Also, try to hire first-level managers with experience instead of engineers who don't know how to manage and don't want to learn.

    Pros

    interseting challenges, cutting edge technology, competent staff, develop good working relations with co-workers

    Cons

    Extremely poor senior management that is not in-touch with reality at ground level. Too many private agendas pulling in different directions and as a result cannot have focused effort towards common goals. Much talk about team efforts and this exists amongst some development teams but not a higher levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Truly develop a long-term plan for success and try to resist the temptation of short-term rewards via cost reduction efforts that require cutting key assets.
