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

Pros

Core business continues to remain a solid profit source. Vast majority of coworkers are a pleasure to work with on a daily basis.

Cons

Wish the business did not have to be run to appease apparently short-term goals of the investment community. Concerned about lack of investment in breaking new technologies that the original Motorola used to be known for.

Advice to Management

Shift the focus from quarter-to-quarter performance aimed at pleasing the analysts and instead lead the company into the next generation of technology.

    I worked at Motorola Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very stable, few layoffs, good work life balance--most people work 9-5pm and no weekends. Unless you are an engineer.

    Cons

    Slow growth and very dry, boring industries. Very old school, hierarchical corporate culture

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up and let more younger, fresher talent rise to the top

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

    Pros

    Worked for home-grown company that sold to Motorola. For nearly four years we operated normally. Long time employee base, huge sense of teamwork and camraderie, produced great results.

    Cons

    After long period of silence, Corporate integrated my company fully into theres, resulting in total chaos, the end result of which was way too many upper level managers/SVPs/etc and not enough workers. They then proceeded with a ridiculous "globalization" effort that resulting in them outsourcing hundreds of local jobs to pretty much every corner of the planet.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the workers who run the day-to-day operations of your company.
