Motorola Mobility – Why Work For Us?


At Motorola, we have a long tradition of innovation. From the invention of the DynaTAC in 1984 to the release of Moto X, Moto G, Moto E and the Moto 360 – each disruptive in their respective segments; we’re changing the way the world defines mobile technology. With Lenovo standing alongside us, we are now poised for perhaps our most challenging and exciting journey to date. With the goal to sell 100 million phones each year, we’re ready to be the number one smartphone provider in the world by 2015. It’s ambitious, we know, but we’re up for the challenge!

To get there, we’re doing things differently. Here, you won’t find hierarchy or bureaucracy. Our people work in supportive, dynamic teams where new ideas are always welcome and things get done. When you join us, you’ll collaborate with global colleagues who will inspire and motivate you.

If you share our commitment to ingenuity and creativity, we want you to help us define our world of tomorrow.


Every time someone powers on a Motorola innovation, we like to think it's charging up the world — making someone smile, say "wow," get a little more out of their day.

That's our mission: empowering life. We do it by bringing our own lives to work every day: our energy, our hobbies, our shared vision.

That passion to empower life is what we look for in our people. It’s how we dream up products that change lives. And it’s why we support the inspiring sweet spot where life and work intersect.

    Lots of talented people, and a lot of good technology.
    Salary and bonus' are good - but it's important you start out on a good salary,
    as you won't be brought in line with peers if you start out on a low amount.


    The company is now much changed and in different ownership.
    The main challenge when I worked there - was the direction the company as a whole was going stragegically.
    Company had a lot of good people and good technology but had challanges getting all products aligned to it's strategy.
    The company would too often buy smaller companies rather than develop in house.
    Getting these collection of small companies aligned on the Motorola ship then became challanging for the company................hence a lot of waste, and not necessarily because some of
    the product lines were not good enough - but rather because the company had too many products, and had difficulty aligning in one direction - or a number of directions.

    Advice to Management

    Do a more blended combination of acquisations and in house development for product development.

    Average Interview


    By far the worst interview I have done. The HR was great, reached out to me and set up everything nicely. The hiring manager at the day of the interview was late to the virtual interview about 20 mins. He was at home dressed in a regular shirt, had absolutely no knowledge of my background (I doubt he even looked at my resume ahead). & Started off with telling me my background was not what they are looking for after I introduced myself...... Why would you list you are looking for someone with engineering background if you are not? He also don't have an clear idea what interns will be doing, and not even a good idea on some of the description he wrote. The whole time he was rude and put a lot of comments that are not very nice. I have experienced a lot of interviews & had three previous internships when I'm in college, so I think my fustration is relatively reasonable.

    I don't know what other people's experience is with the interview, but good luck to you!
