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

Pros

Working for Motorola was a source of pride. The co-workers were like family

Have faith in your employees, the majority of time they know what they are doing. Due to managements poor leadership, Motorola lost it's edge

    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The talent pool of coworkers at Motorola was a major contributing factor to job satisfaction. Working with teams of responsible individuals enabled significant accomplishments.

    Cons

    The most significant downside to working at Motorola is the work/life balance issue. When you are engaged with global development teams, 10 to 12 hour days are the norm. Conference calls at either 7am or 8pm, 3-4 times a week are required to successfully manage development programs.


  2. "Generally a good employer"

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

    Pros

    Motorola has many good people that work there. They are hard working, friendly people to work with. If you get on a good product team, you feel good about what you're doing.

    Cons

    You always feel the year job is at risk. Programs get canceled frequently, making your 50-60 hour work weeks completely wasted.

    Advice to Management

    Please make sure before you start a program that it is something you feel will really go to end. It's really frustrating to work so hard on something that just gets canceled.
