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

    Pros

    The people I worked with were top of the heap. Good employees, hard workers, fun to hang around with.

    Cons

    Senior management was living in the past - they had prior success and it got to their head. They felt they didn't need to listen to customers and didn't need to take risks. Series of layoffs resulted in best employees leaving on their own.

    Pros

    Talented People, Technology innovation, Dedication to quality were some of the key characteristics to success

    Cons

    Confused and inconsistent management planning focus. Team building and org development suffered as a consequence..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember the customer and your people. Devise a disruptive growth strategy and stick with it! Then develop a real marketing team to connect this once great global brand to a clear definition higlighting the capabilities of your products that represent a distinctive tangible experience people can recognize.

    Pros

    The team that I belonged to was great team. The chemistry among us was amazing. The low to mid level managers encouraged and participated in team bonding activities. The most enjoyful work place for me so far.

    no formal training if you are working on new stuffs. Need to ask around although they all are willing to help.
