Pros

- Supportive working environment and people around you are super smart and know their field well - Good vacation days and stock purchase plans - Flexible work hours - Local managers DO care about their employees - Team building events!

Cons

- Corporate's been shrinking on benefits - Medical plan not so good...and it kept on getting worse by the year - Elimination of stock options to low level employee negatively affect retention of young employees - Senior managers in the corporate offices don't seem to care about the well-beings of the employee outside the building and most of what they care about is increasing the stock price (thus increasing shareholder value!)

    Pros

    Excellent front-line management focused on career development and application. Strong committment to consistent evaluation in a company that has become more focused since the Solutions/Mobility separation

    Cons

    No major downsides, only comment is that while pay is competitive with other companies for engineers, if you really want money at MSI, get a sales job.

    Advice to Management

    Recent changes to management and structure seem to be helping. As MSI is a more focused enterprise, continue to consider the impact of changes to all aspects of the business, including the frontline personnel. Accelerate (if possible) conversion from legacy IT systems.


  2. Steady Work with crunch periods at the end of the year
