    They are loosing their grip on the market. Apple is taking over the market accordingly

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

    Pros

    Was there through Google and Lenovo buyouts. Motorola is surprisingly good at finding and hiring very smart people who are fairly easy to work with. I felt like I could make my way into other positions and fitting roles easily.

    Cons

    The brand is dying. :( Too hard to compete with Samsung and Apple. And, now Chinese-owned. Just doesn't feel the same.

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

    Pros

    Motorola is a strong brand name, at least in the Midwest. It was the Google of the 80s and 90s. There are still a few good people there. Just a few.

    Cons

    The world has changed a lot since Motorola's heyday. Unfortunately, Motorola is a hardware company in a software world. It doesn't have the DNA to thrive in the current tech environment.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the brand back to Google. Preserve the remaining dignity of the Motorola name.
