  1. "Great Company"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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.

    Pros

    Great group of people who care about making great products. Collaboratorive design teams who are very knowledgeable in their craft.

    Constant changing of production to different facilities makes it hard to control process sometimes. Travel to foreign countries not ideal work solution.

    Stick with one production facility and bring more jobs back to United States. Too much outsourcing is damaging quality reputation of Motorola.
