    Pros

    Well established company. Great name recognition. Produced quality products and if they become stable again, could still be a force to be reckoned with.

    Damaged by Google takeover. Moved to downtown Chicago. Lost many great people. Lenovo is having issues trying to get that breakout product to revitalize the name

    Pros

    High tech. Nice culture. Care about employees. Truly global and multinational company. Many ex-Motorola people is truly still love this company with our best wishes.

    Cons

    Strategic direction was not well communicated to employees. Employees wanted to do best for the company, but wished to know how. The industry was fast moving, so the changes should be better, and nor frequently communicated.

    Advice to Management

    I have been away too long time to provide advice to current management. I worked for Motorola many years ago. Could not find an option to show my last year on the list.
