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

Pros

Motorola Mobility is in a very interesting consumer space. Fast moving technology. With the Google Acquisition there is a new focus on software and experiences. Look for Motorola to start leading in the Smart phone race.

Cons

Hyper-competitive industry. Inflexible dates due to the need to make key holiday advertising deadlines. Google has decided to move Motorola Mobility from Libertyville to downtown Chicago. The primary reason is to make it easier to attract top software talent.

Advice to Management

Focus. Pick a strategy and execute.

    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time

    Pros

    *Good benefits (it was better in the past)
    *Skilled professionals, good work environment
    *Company is trying to attract top talent by moving its headquarters to downtown Chicago
    *Communication from upper management with the employees seems more open and frequent

    Cons

    *Some of the personnel brought over from Google do not understand the mobile industry especially as it relates to hardware
    *Execution at the mid-high management is not necessarily in sync with the vision pictured by upper management
    *Changes implemented after the Google take over were not totally logical leaving a lot of uncertainty

    Advice to Management

    2013 execution will be key for the future of the company. Make sure you hear feedback from the "doers" and put people with the right skill set in the right places. International markets are different from the US, selling handsets is completely different from selling ads and carriers are still very relevant.
