    I have been working at Motorola Mobility as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great innovation, products you can really stand behind and want to use yourself, setting new standards for the industry.

    Cons

    Company still loses money quarterly so they are extremely cautious how the money is spent. Little investment in new opportunities and their personnel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look more for your own people, they are the ones going the extra mile for this company

    Pros

    Interesting work in high tech electronics. Diverse workforce with good team culture. It will be interesting to see how the company develops with recent change of ownership.

    Cons

    There is no job security. Layoffs on a regular basis. Always looking over your shoulder for the axe to fall in your direction.

    Don't think you can downsize your way to success.

    Allow contract workers to have more of a shot at going perm with the company & to take more calculated risks.
