Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Motorola Solutions full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Salary is good. Vacation allowance is good. Great engineering talent pool.

Cons

Benefits were premier up to 5 years ago but declined to meet industry standards. This included medical benefits, bonuses, and stock options. Pension contributions stopped a few years ago. Merit pay stopped a few years ago to allow the industry to catch up. Some engineers were re-graded lower. There were seven sectors a decade ago, now it's down to just one.

Advice to Management

Greg Brown needs to go before he sells MSI.

    Pros

    Less stress for employee, concentrate on quality and customer, competitive salary.

    Older company, not much of innovations and opportunities to grow. Management protects their positions and suppress lower level employee to promotions. It's a political game and you need to know how to play.
