I have been working at Motorola Mobility full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Strong leadership team, very collaborative environment, great products that are really starting to get momentum.
Industry leading software team and getting Motorola first to market with Android plus adding new features that are really useful vs. gimmicks.

Cons

Lots of change - mostly in the right direction, but it's not for the faint hearted.
It's sometimes hard to get things done, as some processes no longer work, having been built by people no longer with the company.

Advice to Management

Would be great to learn more about Lenovo's plans for the future.
Keep shipping great products and everything else will fall into place.

    I have been working at Motorola Mobility as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great People who are focused on the Company being successful...fun products - disruptive in the market-place.

    Cons

    Uncertainty of Lenovo acquisition...fear of dilution of Motorola Mobility Brand....Motorolan's have huge pride in & for their company...to erase / loose the brand would be another US Industry tragedy.

    Advice to Management

    Remember "Made int he USA"? That holds sway in the US marketplace....let's not loose it with by being structured incorrectly in the marketplace.

    I have been working at Motorola Mobility full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart people, interesting projects and cutting edge technology if you pick the right group. Good work-life balance, flexible work schedule. Convenient access to VTA light rail (public tram) and CalTrain. Motorola products are on the upswing and the company has a promising future.

    Cons

    Staff are anxious about the Lenovo buyout and what it will be like post-Google. Some people abuse the work from home perk, and still plenty of dead weight. Managers have their favorites and you would be disadvantaged in performance reviews if you're not on their list.

    Advice to Management

    Walk around and know your ground troops instead of always relying on your direct reports. They filter the truth you know. Also, the flexible work schedule is a valued benefit and employees with families highly prize it. Don't drop it otherwise you'll lose folks like me.
