    Pros

    Innovative company with very high expectations. Motorola can take your career to new heights.

    Cons

    Not enough senior leaders willing to influence change. Motorola could reach new levels of innovation and go-to-market strength if more senior leaders influenced change.

    Same issues at most medium to large companies the amount of red tape you have to go through to get simple things done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember what made Motorola great. It wasn't get the cheapest resources, it was getting and keeping the best employees. We had an intern program that created long lasting careers that benefited the company and the employee. Bring back the pride and stop outsourcing to people who have NO stake in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure the feedback and suggestions of your direct reports is more of a priority. Give just as much worth to the ideas and comments you receive from those that report to you as you do to your peers and management team.
