    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time

    Pros

    THe company has been very stable for a long time in a nice market. Even tough parts of the parent company has been sold, this division remained stable for a long time.

    Cons

    The company is located in Plantation Florida which is not a good area for engineering as there are not a lot of engineering companies in the area or the whole state.

    Advice to Management

    I think the company could improve by investing more in Research and Development since the electronics business is very competitive and the company needs to continue to do research in order to maintain its leadership position.

    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Right there in the Mobile technology. Resources and Location are fantastic.

    Cons

    Downsizing, downsizing, downsizing, downsizing and corporate acquisitions (Google/Lenovo). Not cool at all!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Don't leave the fate of the company in OTHERS hands. Google and Lenovo caused 'downsizing' and unfortunately I was a casualty in a position I thought I'd be able to RETIRE in.
