Advice to Management

it is hard to look up to the leaders who are keeping their ears to the ground. Take a page out of Robert Galvin's life.

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

    Pros

    Employees are top notch, hard working and focused on success. Compensation is good. Google accurately determined that portfolio was bloated - need to focus of the critical 20%.

    Cons

    A very tough, competitive industry. the Android operating system commoditizes everything, making it very difficult to develop and sustain a competitive advantage.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the long term in mind.

    I have been working at Motorola Mobility full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nice weather pretty much the entire year.

    Cons

    NO, Zero, Kaput, NONE opportunities for younger talented engineers. If you are good or bad, nobody cares. It seems the only metric is the number of years you been sitting in front of a PC.
    Company is not able to identify, and recognize talent.
    NO pay based on performance.
    Too many senior engineers, very tired to think.
    I would not recommend anybody to join this company, but if you do, negotiate your entry salary pretty well, that salary will not move up anytime soon, no matter what you do.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great job!
