I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good benefits, working conditions. Great co-workers who cares and worked hard. Had a few great innovations

Cons

Management was a mess, no vision. Management on top of management, hard to get things moving, always back and forth with too many process. The management was milking on the Razr's success for too long and never think outside of that.

Advice to Management

forward thinking, listen more to lower level's idea and comments.

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

    Pros

    At one time, Motorola was synonymous with technological innovation. It also was the birthplace of Six Sigma.

    Cons

    As much as they tried to change it, the culture of “warring tribes” persisted. Engineers running the company, not business people. Even though they invented it, Six Sigma was "re-introduced" on 3 separate occasions. They lost their business (and moral) compass.

    Advice to Management

    None at this time... as there is not much left.


  2. "Some great people, but abysmal upper management."

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

    Pros

    Motorola Mobility used to be an awesome place to work. Employees were treated with respect and dignity. The company used to pride itself with treating employees better than its competitors. However, changes in upper management have all but destroyed a once great company.

    Cons

    Extremely depressing environment. Employees only just tolerated. Example, the ever present layoffs count employees as "work units" as in: "first quarter, 1,500 work units released." A once wonderful company has been devastated by upper managers only concerned with guaranteeing their own multi-million dollar parachutes. The only money making strategy in the last five years has been to lay off thousands American workers every three months.

    Advice to Management

    Laying off 1,000+ workers per year and then giving multiple upper managers $10+ Million bonuses year after year for "saving money" is both unsustainable and despicable.
