I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Google take over should take company in the right direction as new senior management team does seem to have a solid vision for the future of the company.

Cons

Lay offs 9 out of 12 years, made for a tough working environment. Company was top heavy but Google seems to be taking care of this issue.

Advice to Management

Not a good idea to force employees to have "face time" unless you actually take time to get to know individual employees and their talents.

    I have been working at Motorola Mobility full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Vast potential for personal growth

    Cons

    As any big corporation, decisions are made by bean counters

    Advice to Management

    Check individual performance, contributions before applying "cookie cutter" business decisions. Some very valuable folks with valuable inherent knowledge have been let go with the last layoff in August 2012.
