I have been working at Motorola Solutions full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

-great pay -Great people -great products -great atmosphere

Cons

-surprisingly, not allot of opportunity to advance or lateral move. Everyone is just sitting put due to the ages of the upper levels. A bit top heavy. -Not the Motorola people think about. Not as much focus on employees as in the Galvin days.

Advice to Management

-do more shuffling of people laterally to give them experience.

    Pros

    My role involved a tremendous amount of incredible, international travel. Our design team was so close it was my second family. I stayed a good 4 years longer than I expected because it was fun going to work everyday and felt purpose in the products I was helping create.

    Cons

    It's still an engineering company at heart - makes it tough sometimes to drive innovation when the company still cares more about time and cost. They're coming around, though. Good place to gain tremendous hands-on experience with product development. Sometimes tough to grow/be promoted due to the senior management lifers.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more innovation. Stand behind the designers as much as Marketing and Engineering. Many of us do not see eye to eye on your promotion choices for Director and Senior level managers. Those individuals should exude intelligence, ingenuity, and respect.
