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

Pros

Motorola was a great company to work for in the late 1990s and early 2000s before the Galvin's lost control. They truly cared about their employees and wanted people to work there till they retired. To be part of the company family.

Cons

After the Galvin's left power the company started a step decline and was in continuous layoff mode that never ended. Even after the breakup and purchase by Google they still struggle to be profitable and it is hard to see how they will turn it around. Like most of the telecom industry seems like another sad story and ending to a US powerhouse company.

Advice to Management

Make the end swift and stop dragging it out.

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

    Pros

    Good company with decent pay and benefits. Use to be a market leader in cell phones. When things were rolling along good it was a good place to work.

    Cons

    Decaying, bloated leadership. Maybe the Google takeover can turn it around. To much politics and waste leaving too many "chiefs" and not enough "indians" to do the work to produce good products.
