I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

People culture is great. Very helpful, great team work to get things done. Very flexible work hours as long as things get done. Talented people with great ideas.

Cons

Too many layers of management. Most mid level managements don't really contribute much. They are on the fence most of the time. Not technical enough to drive innovation and bureaucratic to push things through. As a result super slow in response to competitor challenge.

Advice to Management

Mid level management is the main bottle neck. Need to trim it off to be more effective.

    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time

    Pros

    The few employees that remain do care about each other

    Cons

    There is no corporate culture left after so many layoffs. Pervasive feeling of stress, sense this is the last chance, and growing belief that Google is going to take the IP and kill off the rest.

    Advice to Management

    The few long time Motorola managers that are left are retired in place, just hanging on for those last few months. New managers coming in are not being attuned to a vision or taught to care about team building. When in consumer products, you need teams.
