    Pros

    Best hardware and software engineers anywhere. Great teamwork. Extremely intelligent engineers. Great mentoring. Very professional environment among employees. Treat you like family...

    Cons

    ... while management treats you most of the time like a very dysfunctional family. Very fond of layoffs as a business strategy. Never seen a bunch of so many mediocre managers in more than 20 years in the engineering and military environment. They are really pitiful.

    Advice to Management

    Just quit. Yes, management. Quit. Already 15 years of dismantling piece by piece this company and nothing to show for it. Only your bonuses. And still complain about losing money every year, no matter what you think you are doing "great". 15 years straight. Really? If anything has been proven in here is how not to manage a company.


  2. Very good products, but Motorola is not the same

    leadership doesn't know how to use the resource.

    Cool products, smart people, abundant resources.

    Toxic environment, everyone out for themselves, more time spent covering one's backside rather than working together for the greater good. Poor work-life balance.

    Work hard to instill teamwork and don't reward back-stabbing and the political games.
