I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

If you are a foreign worker on an H1-B and you need your green card, this may be ok for you. If you want to work long hours with questionable acknowledgement this is for you. It is probably ok for new grads to get some experience in the workforce.

Cons

There has been a history of working long hours to compensate for poor management decisions. This has improved since goggle has purchased the company and I suspect it will continue to improve.

Advice to Management

Keep up with the Google management style, this appears to be working! The old Mot did not understand 'managed by data' and frequently ignored the data if it meant they could get an additional bonus by looking the other way.

    I have been working at Motorola Mobility as an intern

    Pros

    You work with exciting technology and great people.

    Perks:
    - free snacks and drinks
    - donut & bagels Wednesdays
    - free gym membership

    Cons

    Worked there during the company acquisition so there were a lot of changes happening and there was no clear lead or management. Didn't have the chance to implement actions or run with projects because of rebranding guidelines. Workflow was not efficient because of required authorization of actions.
