Principal software engineer

Principal Software Engineer (Current Employee)
San Diego, CA

I have been working at Motorola Mobility full-time for more than 10 years

ProsCoworkers and managers are easy to get along. Some projects are really fun to work on. Moreover, with fewer product portfolio, and with more focus on key products, the quality of the products will have significant improvement. The management structure is flatten a bit with the new CEO.

ConsCompany internal bureaucratic and politics limit the effectiveness of cross department collaborations? Also, several rounds of layoff has some really negative effects on employees to the least.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on end user experience
