We are moving our global headquarters from Schaumburg, IL to downtown Chicago. We started in Chicago 87 years ago and are excited to be coming home.
For more than 80 years, Motorola has helped the world be its best.
From introducing one of the first commercially successful car radios that delivered vital news right to us no matter how far from home, to developing the equipment that transmitted the first words from the moon, to leading a public safety revolution with the world's first-ever handheld laser scanner, Motorola's employees have a history of exploding possibility across the planet, innovating smarter, more flexible and more insightful ideas.
Our employees enable industries worldwide to thrive, achieve and do their best work. They create indispensable, indestructible tools to help more people in more businesses in more places to be their best. They do it to better serve the government, health, public safety and other businesses for which we've created clear and confident communications solutions for more than 80 years. The work they do is meaningful, impactful and ongoing.
And we need driven, motivated visionaries like you to join them.
At Motorola Solutions, we strive to create an environment where every employee can contribute to his or her fullest potential. We do this through a set of common Values that bind us together.
We are innovative. We constantly create ingenious solutions to the real challenges of today, tomorrow and beyond.
We are passionate. We meet every challenge with energy and determination, always pursuing ever-higher standards.
We are driven. We keep it simple by focusing on what matters most so we can seize opportunities with speed and confidence.
We are accountable. We stand behind the work we do, the contributions we make and the high business standards we maintain.
We are partners. We succeed together because we respect all individuals and value contributions from colleagues and customers alike.
To work with and for Motorola Solutions, start here.
Our Values are based on a foundation of uncompromising integrity and ethics that influence everything we do. They represent not just what we believe, but how we will behave toward each other, our customers, our suppliers and all of our stakeholders.
By focusing on our Values, Motorola Solutions strives to create an inclusive environment where every individual has opportunity to make an impact. That's how we build on the innovation that has been our legacy for more than 80 years. It all starts with our belief that the next big idea can come from anyone, anywhere, at any time. At Motorola Solutions, diversity and inclusiveness are more than the keys to meeting and exceeding our customers' diverse needs - they're our competitive advantage.
Motorola Solutions is a smaller, more focused company than our predecessor, Motorola, Inc., allowing each of our employees greater say and greater impact. But our culture also asks every one of us to contribute to our fullest potential. With our Values as our foundation, we strive to engage the organization in promoting a culture that values diversity of thought. This gives each of us the chance to contribute to the best of our ability, and is the driving force behind Motorola Solutions' success.

I have been working at Motorola Solutions full-time (More than a year)
Amazing people, everyone is treated with respect whether you are a contractor or employee. The culture is great! They are very flexible and forward-thinking with mobility/flexibility in your work schedule and location.
I honestly don't have any at this time! I don't see this as a con but some people would, a lot of areas have very few or no admins. Everyone is expected to do their own calendars, get supplies, and other miscellaneous items. New people that are used to an admin take a little extra time to adjust to this but it seems to work well in the type of environment they have created. Not to worry, everyone is pretty self-sufficient!
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Motorola Solutions.
The entire process from application to hire took about two months (with a one week delay). Once selected (which took about a week after initial application in my case) I got an email to do a phone interview. It was a two phase interview (background screening then technical). The background screening was 30 minutes and included typical interview type questions such as "what is your greatest strength", but it also included VERY simple coding type questions (as a sanity check). The background screening actually included a couple of brainteasers as well (to assess communication and critical thinking skills). Then the second part of the phone interview was with someone else. Surprisingly, this was also mostly nontechnical and included many of the same background questions, but with general "academic" OOP questions thrown in (like "explain polymorphism"). I got a call from a recruiter about a week after the phone interview asking me to come in for the full in-person interview. This interview was a full day and included lunch. It started and ended with the hiring manager who is very warm and made me feel comfortable and excited to be there. The interview was a series of (give or take) one hour interviews. Each interview was a mixture of background and technical questions. There were no ridiculously hard Google-style questions to stress about, just one brainteaser question again to gauge communication and problem solving skills. Everyone was very nice and very engaging, and they all made me feel like I belong there. This is a job for people who care and take pride in what they do, and they ARE looking for that genuine quality so don't try to fake it. This is a company that takes great pride in all aspects of quality as our mission is to create products that save lives. Finally, a few days after the interview I got the offer via call. There is a thorough background check and so it took another couple weeks before I started working. Overall, it was very smooth and thorough.
