I have been working at Motorola Mobility full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Pay is competitive with other engineering jobs.
Benefits are very good, with many options.
401k with company match, Portable Pension Plan (for new employees)
Opportunities to work in various technical positions and learn new skiils.

Cons

Struggling to regain profitability, which means constant reductions in force.
Very bureaucratic, which slows movement on projects and the ability to make a timely decision.
Training is limited (both internal and external) due to the lack of profitability and the reductions in force adding to the workload of the remaining employees.

Advice to Management

Find a way to reduce load to increase the ability of employees to have training. Put more thought into reductions in force, and the affect it has not only on the people that are let go, but on the remaining employees.
