    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with!

    Maybe too many irons in the fire, too many groups developing code for multiple phone carriers!

    If there was some way to streamline the processes so multiple groups aren't inventing the same things at the same time...more knowledge sharing to save time and duplication of effort!
