Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Motorola still has a great brand in North America and awesome innovation internally (just can't seem to get it out the door..). The best reason to work at Motorola is the people - everyone (below the Sr. Director level) was intelligent, articulate and willing to collaborate.

Cons

Management seems to be focused on themselves, their wallets and their careers, not the success of the company. Stock awards are pitiful. Bonuses almost non-existent. Raises very small. Promotions given to friends of management or people with job offers from other companies.

Advice to Management

Invest time in consistent strategy, team-building, and collaboration sessions. Reward solid performers as they are the foundation of your success.

    Pros

    Competitive salary, nice benefits, flexible schedule, great work environment

    Cons

    Too many of those who puts more effort into appearing busy and important than in doing actual work. No career development opportunities. What you get when they hire you is pretty much what you're stuck with.

    Advice to Management

    Too late for that I guess. The company is being sold and we'll have another management soon.
