    I worked at Motorola Mobility (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The staff includes plenty of talented engineering and business professionals that try to that best to help the company succeed.

    Cons

    Senior Leadership team that could not manage to work together. Egos first. Saving the company less important.

    Advice to Management

    Start using the ability to work cooperatively as a leader as one of the most important requirements for someone to get, and retain, a position in upper management.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Slightly above average pay, state of the art technology, fosters team oriented work environment.

    Cons

    Overly populated H1-B's, very long work hours, over worked with unreachable expectations, large degree of stress/anxiety, located in downtown Chicago (~2 hour commute (1 way) from suburbs), high expectations, no bonus program. Owned by foreign entity (culture shock).

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. Bring in a management team that truly wants to reposition the brand to a top tier through true innovation. Also, revamp marketing.

    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Cool products to work on, great comradery among the peers. Great lower-level engineering management. Good pay and benefits. Diverse engineering teams.

    Cons

    Rudderless ship in a perpetual state of layoffs. Uncertainty about the company's future direction. Clueless sales and marketing teams. The move to downtown Chicago was unnecessary. Work-life balance took a nose dive since the move.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the senior leadership teams, sales and marketing. Promote the mid-level managers. Keep the hard working and smart talent that is still around

    Pros

    Used to have big ideas

    Cons

    No vision. Work hard for no reason.

    Advice to Management

    CEO should get rid of upper engineering management. They got rid of everyone else and the company is still making same mistakes. Engineering leadership is checking resistors and brands and not strong the ship.

    Stop pushing products to customers with known flaws and limitations just because the schedule says you have to ship.
