    I have been working at Motorola Solutions full-time (Less than a year)


    The people here are great to work with, and the products we support serve an extremely meaningful purpose. The ERGs here, known as Business Councils, are also increasingly doing a better job of creating collaborative programming and events, promoting diversity, and offering ways for employees to hold leadership positions, gain visibility, and get involved.


    More collaboration/connection of employees between the various sites would be great.

    Advice to Management

    Getting more involved with professional conferences for internal talent development, spreading brand & mission awareness, and recruiting more talent would go a long way.
