    Pros

    Used to have big ideas

    Cons

    No vision. Work hard for no reason.

    Advice to Management

    CEO should get rid of upper engineering management. They got rid of everyone else and the company is still making same mistakes. Engineering leadership is checking resistors and brands and not strong the ship.

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

    Pros

    Great pay and comparable benefits relative to other tech companies in my area. Clear vision to execute.

    Cons

    Although the vision is clear, it is wrong in my opinion. This will eventually wipe the company away.

    Advice to Management

    Be a US company with a US market presence. Be true to yourself. Don't wait on Lenovo to rescue you.
