    I worked at Motorola Solutions full-time

    Pros

    1. Very relaxed environment with very less work stress and peer pressure.
    2. Management very approachable and encouraging.

    Cons

    1. Management is very stubborn and most of the times very slow to change / bring great products to market fast.
    2. Sr. Mgmt and Leadership is not receptive of radical changes, which lets other companies take it for a ride.
    3. Outdated manufacturing and IT processes which lead to high costs and slow changes.
    4. Mostly SDLC modified agile practices which does not work for the most part.
    5. Not much enthusiasm at the employee level and not much sense of ownership.

    Advice to Management

    1. Be flexible and proactive to changes in the marketplace and try to bring changes in your teams.
    2. Do not react to something after the fact, be proactive and have the market follow you.
    3. Do not make another mistake like letting Nokia win you over even though they did not have any mobile IP.
    4. Do not bring in high profile CEO's who knows nothing more than what you do and pay them exorbitant amount of money to suggest a simple mantra which most of the employees and you already knew at the time.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great resource of process driven RF experts and large capital budgets to maintain a significant pool of test equipment and physical resources.

    Cons

    Change of direction is painfully slow. Several years ago the company had some processes in the product life cycle that did not allow participation from all elements of the company until it was 'their turn'.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure how things are managed today, but, I would modify the product life cycle and its review process to include input from all interested parties at each stage.
