    I have been working at Zebra Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Indirect sales and channel sales are a challenging and rewarding type of sell. I enjoy the work-life balance, team atmosphere and relationship building with clients.

    Cons

    Moving ex-Motorola employees to Lincolnshire. They need to have a downtown office for all of the employees who live in downtown Chicago. Lincolnshire is too far away for commuters.

    I have been working at Zebra Technologies full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Free environment, flexible work hours (except some teams)

    Cons

    Policies change frequently. The company not give a firm answer for the future target. Pay is lower than average

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be cheap while hiring people, you want somethings to be done well, you need to pay more.

    It was difficult communicating anything that was outside the box or innovative.

    Maybe get some training in management, professionalism, etc.

    Great co-workers, terrible upper management. The CEO is often ignored by upper management.

    I worked at Zebra Technologies full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Zebra wants to be a good company. Some departments have amazing opportunities. The engineering-related areas are definitely worth consideration for their innovations and creativity. They have an enthusiastic and friendly work force that really wants to do their best every day.

    Cons

    At the same time, changes in the company leave the sense that they are spinning the Wheel of Fortune to select the day's management philosophy. This is especially evident in sales and customer support, where the revolving door continues to spin. Staffing is pared down to the point that employees are under high pressure with no release in sight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be clear and consistent. During the CEO's campaign for employee input on products, I made a suggestion (later implemented) the morning of the first day. By noon, the director was calling my manager out because I dared to make a suggestion.
    Respect your employees. It just might be good business

    Pros

    Good learning curve. You can see the best technology in label printing market here and get used to working towards developing new models all the time. There is a clear team structure and almost everybody is encouraging when you start.

    Cons

    Location. Located in a secluded suburb of Vernon Hills where there is nothing much to do. So if you want to have a city atmosphere, you better be ready to commute for more than an hour.
