    Pros

    Great Management, great benefits, good people to work with. Open atmosphere and lots of encouragement to talk to other departments

    Cons

    Not a lot of shade in the parking lot. Automatic toilets explode like a volcano.

    Advice to Management

    Run the other divisions like the Agoura Hills division.

    I worked at Zebra Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    High-quality, great products. One of the managers I had there was one of the best managers I've EVER had, anywhere. The individual contributors were also very smart people as well. I GREATLY enjoyed my time there, and would love to go back. One team I was on was CHOCK full of very smart people, who just "got it." These folks challenged my thinking every day. I loved it.

    Cons

    Not many "Cons" at all, really. A couple of the managers (that are no longer with the company) were not necessarily best-suited to their roles, but for the most part, it was a great company to work for - again - I'd go back in a heartbeat.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Making best-in-class products, hire smart people to help you get them out there, and continue to innovate.

    Pros

    Lack of pressure on testing releases. Multiple printers needing testing. Management does not require business attire.

    Cons

    End of contract notification came on Monday and ended that Friday. After 2 1/2 years working there it seems HR has rules on time to keep contractors.

    Advice to Management

    Each contractor that leaves takes hard won knowledge out the door. Bodies are replaceable but knowledge lost is never recovered.

    Pros

    Zebra takes good care of their employees and treats us with respect. Benefits are great!

    Since merging with Motorola Enterprise Solutions, their seems to be a distinct border between the companies, where there should not be.

    I worked at Zebra Technologies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They were extremely open minded for new ideas and those who worked for Zebra, was rewarded for future. It was a smart company to work at.

    Cons

    As with most large companies, money and profit margin got in the way. Leading to the eventual closure of the facility for more exposure in the Asian market.
