Pros

The people I work with are very willing to take time out of their day to answer the many questions I have. As an intern, I am kept busy with multiple projects, which is more than I can say for other internships. Paid time off is very flexible and a nice perk for being a Motorola intern.

Cons

Communication of deadlines is sometimes vague. The may be partially attributed to the fact that the work I complete isn't very high priority. I'd prefer more week to week feedback on the projects I'm working on.

Advice to Management

I think my manager should be more involved in the work I do. That would help to boost my motivation ans spur more creative/higher quality work.

    Pros

    The co-workers are phenomenal. Many years ago when I started with the company I met some people there that almost 15 years later I am still friends with. In smaller groups you have a better chance of learning and mastering new things that you might not get a chance to do in a bigger group.
    The company overall has been great to me in giving me opportunities and allowing me to grow professionaly from a young age. But again, all good things must come to an end.

    Cons

    The downsides came towards the end of my career there. Their management lacked focus both within their groups for projects as well as towards their employees. How far you got because more of a matter of who you knew and not what you new. Definetly allot of politcs was happening in the last few years of me being there.

    Advice to Management

    Some pieces of advice would be to allow the employees the freedom to be creative and help make the company what it once was. A second piece of advice would be to give less importance to managing and more importance to being leaders that employees can follow their example.
    That is not the case right now. Very very few people want to immulate their managers.


  2. "Too many attempts to fix"

    Pros

    nice people, good benefits, including flexible work hours, good pay, easy to network with other employees, open door policies, opportunities to work on fun projects

    Cons

    wa a great place but has been going down hill for some time now. very unfortunate, since this is not due to market forces but due to too many changes in senior leadership - corporate gypsies who are in it for the short term, get huge sign-on bonuses, then make major changes and leave again (with another bonus)

    Advice to Management

    believe in people and that future success is only possible with people - invest in people instead of laying them off
