    Pros

    Innovative company with a world class reputation for quality and imagining a bold future. It was an honor to represent the company all over the world in the most exciting and fastest growing consumer product market in history, the cellphone/smartphone.

    Cons

    Had a tendency to keep poor senior level managers too long, too much damage was done waiting for them to be replaced, to many opportunities missed.

    Advice to Management

    The company was at it best when talented engineers and technical people ran the company. They had a vision of the future that changed the world in communications, semi-conductors, etc. but they were replaced by people who worried more about Wall Street and next quarter.


  11. Motorola was an wonderful company to work with. It provided lots of opportunities in learning, exploring, etc.

    * technologies range from cutting edge to some archaic.

    company growth is a problem.

    Advice to Management
