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

Pros

There are a number of very smart people who work at Motorola, many smart engineers with a large variety of skills. They are willing to teach what they know and share their knowledge.

Cons

A top heavy layer of managers who spend most of their time in meetings discussing how things should be done and not actually getting things done. The company moves at a slower pace, so product turn around is lengthy and full of delays.

Advice to Management

Allow Engineering teams more freedom to make decisions and create change instead of forcing processes that just seem to bog everyone down. If people work good together and produce effective results, do not think that splitting this people up will make many new teams that will be as effective.

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

    Pros

    Working in Silicon valley you forget to be grateful. But the pros: great pay, free food, work is not bad either with each release there is a new exciting feature to work on. And great people. I loved my co-workers.

    Cons

    After all you're working for another company, with the weight, the bad decisions, and the direction (to be sold) it is going in. I wish the culture were a little bit more competitive, tighter feature planning, less grunt work & processes.
