    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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    promotions never came.

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Good coworkers, 20 days of vacation

    Cons

    Bad management, Bad work culture, Frequent layoffs, expected to work 7/24 by management so you can have any family plan or life balance. Pushy manager will be promoted.

    Advice to Management

    The problem with the company is wrong decisions.
    By making the employee works 7/24, the result will be unsatisfied employee with low motivation whom try to leave company.
