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

Pros

Great products and a great tradition of innovation. Google influence has invigorated the environment and focused development efforts in a healthy way.

Cons

Uncertainty over Lenovo direction and fear we will return to trying to be all things for all carriers.

Layoffs have been brutal and persistent.

Advice to Management

Get your marketing house in order. Our products are much better than our sales figures indicate.

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

    Pros

    Evolving technology and projects keep the work interesting on the technical side. Selected projects are well funded and emphasize applications rather than hardware.

    Cons

    Layoffs, reorganizations, confusion, and constant change in priorities make planning and executing projects very difficult for workers. Very unclear what the new future holds. Employees feel unappreciated by management. Everyone is treated as if they were a contractor.

    Advice to Management

    Do something to create some sense of stability.

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

    Pros

    people here are friendly, when you meet troubles, you can ask help from others, mostly they would like to help you ASAP.
    Good lead, lead here are very good, they respect everyone, when some tasks need to be assigned to you, they will talk with you gently and will not make you feel they are your boss.
    Good working environment, when working at Libertyvill, the office has very large space, everyone has independent cube.

    Cons

    No specific.
    One thing is some people who worked there don't have too much enthusiasm. Some guys may just walk around and seems they have nothing to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    keep pros
