Pros

Experience working in a large, corporate environment.

Cons

LOTS of redtape!! I understand it is difficult for a large corporation to remove some of the issues with internal teams working with one another, but the company can be so much more efficient!

    Current Employee - Product Manager in Libertyville, IL
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Very smart people in engineering and management. Generally good people to work with on cool technology. Starting salaries are generally good.

    Cons

    Things tend to become unraveled as commitments made by senior leadership to carriers and the market cause breakdowns in order. Portfolio planning in non-existent. Corporate VPs are often unwilling to make decisions or tough trade-off decisions with a direct order from the CEO. Communication with the business is often poor, to the detriment of the products and completeness of Motorola's offerings.

    Advice to Management

    Work on developing internal leadership talent. Stop hiring so many Palm cast-offs and select leaders from the outside for their ability to provide contrarian viewpoints. Remaking Palm within the Software Development organization will not lead to Palm-like success. (Maybe it will, but Palm was a flash in the pan, right?)


  2. "Good opportunities to grow and build on your skills, but not a lot of opportunities to move vertically."
