    Developing relationships with great hard working people is the best thing about working at Motorola.

    Upper Management Product Decisions have been the cause of several failures to bring back Motorola as a quality engineering manufacture of cell phones.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your Directors of what can be and cant be done; Enable innovation and provide work/life balance to employees. USA employees were always expected to work 70 hr weeks and holidays, whereas this was not reciprocated in other country locations.

    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.
