    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, great benefits, great stock options, and great vacation package.
    Casual atmosphere (sometimes a select few take casual to a new meaning). Flexible schedules.

    Cons

    There were a few cons however — the company likes to keep a lot of contractors, this creates some trepidation over job security. Sometimes, you are stuck with projects you dislike while others get easier, more fun projects to work on.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the employees to rate your upper management and understand what kind of people are working (term used loosely) as your representatives of the Phoenix facility. I think that there would be a lot of raised eyebrows when the management sees how they are viewed by their reports. This would go as far as a review of plant manager (however, there are too many people who are 'yes men' and only care about their personal growth).
