Pros

Well established process in place, well structured organization. Good old engineering work. You can learn a lot from working for this company.

Cons

Old school, projects move slowly, many layers of management, slow decision making. Benefits used to be nice, but it got worse and worse.

    It was once a great company before the MBAs ran it into the ground.

    Pros

    Salaries are still competitive, and there's rarely any overtime demanded anymore

    Cons

    Just waiting for the layoffs to come around to me...most everybody is gone now that knew anything

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop believing that engineers are interchangeable.

    I worked at Motorola Solutions full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I recently quit after working here for more than 5 years.

    - Initially when i joined the company was thriving and there were lots of opportunities for growth and learning.
    - Work/Life balance is excellent

    Cons

    - The products currently being developed are old compared to the current technology.
    - 100 Million cost cutting in the next 12 months. I expect more layoffs and reduction of benefits
    - Employee benefits have been reduced every year

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to value the employees and retain talent. A lot of the people i know have left in the past few years.

    The company's been shrinking for the last few years. There have been plenty of layoffs and the employee morale is at an all time low.
