Never a dull moment - everything is bound to change

Consultant (Former Employee)
Schaumburg, IL

I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time for more than 8 years

ProsUsed to be a fun place to work where people actually cared. You manger actually cared about your career path and looked out for your growth.

ConsConstantly outsourcing and downsizing. It's like walking on a ice covered lake in May. Always have to watch your step and watch for the swinging axe.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on your people - they are the ones who made you a success before you started cutting their throats.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Not satisfying, work for 2 years and then move on

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Schaumburg, IL

I have been working at Motorola Mobility

Pros- Good place for youngsters to get their hands wet.
- Upper management is pretty chilled out and would not make you work hard, career progress is decent if you stick around for a lot of years

Cons- Very relaxed attitude towards work. Hard deadlines are never followed.
- Most of the senior coders walk in anytime they want and stay till whatever time suits them

Advice to Senior ManagementTake lots of feedback from entry-level employees or those who have worked in other companies for many years.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Once was a great place to work, alas no more

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Schaumburg, IL

I have been working at Motorola Mobility

ProsBenefits package was good, onsite gym, onsite day care facility, on site cafeteria (poor food though). Fairly good central location.

ConsConstant fear of being laid off.
Lack of communication from Senior Management to employees.
Management making decisions to lay people off yet still flying their corporate jets and spending frivolously on their own personal enjoyment.
Dull monotonous environment lacking in inspiration

Advice to Senior ManagementIt would be good for the senior managers to BE SEEN to be making some sacrifices themselves personally. It still seems like they enjoy the good life while laying off people and cutting back benefits etc.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
