    I worked at Motorola Solutions as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I was just an intern there with limited knowledge of the industry.
    They were all very helpful and tried to give me different assignments to complete.
    I was part of different meetings and got to know a lot of the people there.

    Cons

    I wasn't around for long enough to get a feeling of any cons worth mentioning here.

    I worked at Motorola Solutions

    Pros

    Telecommuting, benefits, people - all great! Telecommuting is almost the entire culture. Most telecommuters are treated just like in office people, and since many teams are global, there is a sense that everyone is in the same situation - not in an office building but at home. This is a very strong component to the benefits of working at MSI.

    Cons

    It is a challenge to get ahead. There are many, many, many Reductions in Force (everyone knows what "the list" is, and no one wants to be on it!) Probably the hardest thing is to be stuck in a niche and then not have the opportunity to advance.

    I have been working at Motorola Solutions full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ability to work from home, vacation or paid time off starts at 4 weeks for developers. Healthy training budget, training gets approved fairly easily. Interesting projects. Ability to work with teams from all over the world who are technically sharp and competent.

    Cons

    The company should invest in newer technologies and lead the market on innovations. Why the company hasn't invested more on Artificial Intelligence when it already has all the know how for voice processing and the ability to attract talent. The company should invest in drones, robotics, AI, wearable electronics for public safety.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in newer technologies and lead the market on innovations. Bring in new employees and lead the market again.
