    Pros

    Great team in the design studio
    lot of challenging work
    work/life balance
    good people on every team

    Cons

    Lack of Focus (post lenovo acquisition)
    Engineering driven...it was not user centered design

    Advice to Management

    Need greater emphasis on a human centered design approach throughout the company. Talking about a research driven organization is not the same thing as being a human centered design and research driven organization.

    Pros

    Lots of talented people, and a lot of good technology.
    Salary and bonus' are good - but it's important you start out on a good salary,
    as you won't be brought in line with peers if you start out on a low amount.

    Cons

    The company is now much changed and in different ownership.
    The main challenge when I worked there - was the direction the company as a whole was going stragegically.
    Company had a lot of good people and good technology but had challanges getting all products aligned to it's strategy.
    The company would too often buy smaller companies rather than develop in house.
    Getting these collection of small companies aligned on the Motorola ship then became challanging for the company................hence a lot of waste, and not necessarily because some of
    the product lines were not good enough - but rather because the company had too many products, and had difficulty aligning in one direction - or a number of directions.

    Advice to Management

    Do a more blended combination of acquisations and in house development for product development.
