    Current Employee - Project Manager in Schaumburg, IL
    Current Employee - Project Manager in Schaumburg, IL

    I have been working at Motorola Solutions full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great culture and some institutional memory of being great once.

    Cons

    Constant cutbacks and loss of key people with long institutional knowledge, focus on the next quarter at the expense of the future, stock price seems to be the only metric everyone is concerned about. Company seems be trying to save itself by spinning off another division every six months. Every function is outsourced, every IT or HR support issue takes forever to resolve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't insult the intelligence of your employees

    Company lost its ability to identify cutting edge technology that translates into new-to-the-world innovative products.

    Current Employee - Product Manager in Schaumburg, IL

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

    Pros

    Promotion from within, ability to switch jobs, work from home, generous paid time off for years of employment, internally measures employee satisfaction and generally tries to improve it.

    Cons

    Eliminating USA jobs with replacements in foreign countries, push to decrease salary into the "industry average" which makes talented people leave the company, limited investments in the 401K, Schaumburg's office and work spaces are decades old and antiquated, for the last 15 years senior management is not able to truly lead the company back to greatness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop shedding businesses, find new forward-thinking and bold senior leaders, give new ideas and products time to be adopted by the market, find managers with exceptional enthusiasm, reestablish the pure research group and support them effectively, set up entrepreneurial groups, offer superior pay for superior results.
