    Former Employee - Senior Engineer in Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)

    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Such a great company to work for, stock options were generous, holidays bonuses twice a year and annual reviews routine. The work was interesting and varied and had a great collection of dedicated engineering staff.

    The office environment was relaxed and friendly but efficient and focused. Management allowed the engineers to do what they do best, engineering with little interruption.

    Cons

    The only thing I would say I did not like was free phones had a low limit for personal calls.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, such good pedigree, others can only mimic in envy.

    Company is not stable enough.
    Appraisal system isn't quite right. Key work partners often turn out to be people who stab you behind your back.

    The appraisal system requires a change
