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

Pros

Though it is old company, I didn't see much office politics. People are very nice and cooperative.

Cons

I didn't see much career development opportunity. The quality of people in terms of devotion and talent is quite mixed.

    I have been working at Motorola Mobility full-time

    Pros

    Exciting like roller coaster. Very focused on technology 1 to 2 years out but limited research. Finally have good software and software team. Decent product offerings with some success (market share growth). New ownership (Lenovo) may provide road to success (more market share) and profitability (i.e. still need to stem quarterly losses). Salary decent given cost of living is low in Illinois. For same reason work-life balance better in Illinois than California. Work interesting and challenging.

    Cons

    Exciting like roller coaster. Leadership stuck on near term focus of product delivery. Multiple years of turmoil due to multiple changes in management and ownership and significant downsizing has left many teams a little shell shocked. Next challenge yet another new owner: Lenovo. Partnership either helps MM to grow market share or worst case is just a grab for Motorola brand followed by significant layoffs to stem MM quarterly losses.
