    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.
