The top brass gets it

    Cons

    Too many silos. Not one team marching to the same beat moving in the same direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to consider customer's viewpoint in dealing with Motorola. Too many Points of Contact dependent on which product, which market segment, etc

    I have been working at Motorola Solutions full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company realy has some of the best engineers in the business. Post-split, it's relatively stable and profitable. On a day to day basis, it's a good place to work, and the benefits, while massively eroded in the last 10 years, are still slightly above average. Compensation is reasonable, but certainly not class-leading.

    Cons

    The old pure research organization Motorola Labs was shut down, and the company now seems happy to coast along with minor improvements to the niche industries they're in.. they have no ambition to grow, take no risks, and are very beholden to United States government spending.

    Policies and management are very old school, big company when they need to be modern, adaptable, and "work anywhere" friendly.

    Everything is designed to be "competitve", but never leading. Reminds me of a Dilbert - "Should I continue working as hard as I can, or back off to a more competitive level."
