I have been working at Motorola Mobility full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The folks below director-level work hard through a challenging environment to get the job done. There is a sense of camaraderie and people are ethical and professional. There can be (depending on your manager) a strong sense of work/life balance.

Cons

Organization, team, direction and middle management change constantly. There is an inordinate amount of politics across all levels. There is no sense of certainty in the products being developed, roadmap, appropriateness to market, and little direction is given from upper management.

Advice to Management

Bring in some new blood and start listening to the employees who are out there interfacing with the customers every day.

    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some very bright people. Great history. Google might still be savior.......

    Cons

    Unclear why Google bought Motorola. May have become to small and irrelevant to compete with Apple and Samsung. New Google people have much to learn. Likely to repeat past mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Get on with transition plan before consumers (and loyal customers) forget you.

    I worked at Motorola Mobility (More than a year)

    Pros

    Given autonomy to produce what I thought were good initiatives when there was no leadership support. Great for my personal development.

    Cons

    Executive leadership not supportive. Processes and ease of use of basic employee tools are a huge hinderance. Culture is not defined. People are very unhappy here and there are too many "yes" people in leadership.

    Advice to Management

    They don't care and it is evident. Bring Tony Robbins in to get you all together working cohesively. Take a look at how unhappy the employees really are and do something.
