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

    Pros

    You can tell there was a time when this was a great company to work for. Valued its employees, compensated them well, had a good culture. When I first started there, I had a lot of fun and worked hard but never resented the effort put into my job because it all seemed worth it.

    Cons

    Over the past few years, it's been on the decline but the buyout by G really pounded the last nail into the coffin. Things fell apart, the acquisition was handled clumsily and with an "I'll just ignore what I don't like and it'll go away" approach, and people were treated like nameless assets instead of human beings.

    Advice to Management

    You have nothing without good people. Figure out how to show that you value the ones who are doing all the work.

    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time

    Pros

    Part of Google now so hidden behind their financial performance.
    No longer forced to keep up with HW spec based product or Android release cycle.
    Join Google instead and take a rotation to Moto.

    Cons

    Very different from Google - culture, politics, perks, people, although mgmt would like to think they are the same.
    The influx of Googlers creating a tiered culture. Those that are from Google have visibility, trust and air-time with the new leadership.
    Moto considered mid-western, lazy (IMO) and lacks IQ.

    Advice to Management

    give Moto people an equal seat at the table. Else you will loose bright people.
