    Pros

    The culture is good and there is new a push to innovate things apart from the regular day to day work. Frequency of communication from the SLT has increased of late, that helps everyone to be in sync with the overall plans. Very satisfied with the work life balance and the facilities available

    Cons

    Regular change of hands do affect the morale and the organization is not open as it claims to be.

    Pros

    Highest caliber of people (competency and character) imaginable!

    Cons

    Defocused organization, overlead by finance. Playing not to lose, rather than playing to win.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on few products and high-value markets only. Couple that with the true innovation that originally built Motorola as one of the greatest companies ever.
