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

    Pros

    Motorola does give pretty good PTO days and the salary seems to be a little higher than the rest of the industry. There's some bonding through misery which causes some camaraderie.

    Cons

    Motorola used to be a fantastic place to work. Lots of opportunity, balanced work-life, and the prestige that went with a Fortune 70 company. Then it started selling off small pieces then selling off major pieces. This along with the constant layoffs caused it to transform itself into literally a new company called Motorola Solutions.

    We thought that this smaller more focused place would solve it's past issues. However, now this company is still selling off and heavily laying off the last piece that's remaining. Morale is at an all-time low as there's nowhere internally left to "escape" to. Is barely a Fortune 500 company now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize the emotional impact all of these layoffs and sell-offs cause to your employees. And please stop saying to forget about the past. It's the glorious past that caused us to join Motorola in the first place. Understand that being a "has-been" is in many ways worse than being a "never-was".

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

    Pros

    The people are great! Very friendly, helpful, compassionate...
    Excellent benefits - bar none!
    Salary is comparable - won't be eating caviar everyday, but you definitely won't starve!

    Cons

    The climate (now, of course not the Moto of time past) is that "these great people" are dispensable. Buildings are being sold left & right on the campus, downsizing everywhere, many fearing & not knowing if they'll be cut next. A turbulent time but hopeful it will recover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your greatest asset - not the shareholders, not Wall Street analysts, not the CEO's lifestyle - none of this!!! It's the great people that helped build this company that has been around for 85 years.
