    I have been working at Motorola Mobility full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Strong leadership team, very collaborative environment, great products that are really starting to get momentum.
    Industry leading software team and getting Motorola first to market with Android plus adding new features that are really useful vs. gimmicks.

    Cons

    Lots of change - mostly in the right direction, but it's not for the faint hearted.
    It's sometimes hard to get things done, as some processes no longer work, having been built by people no longer with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Would be great to learn more about Lenovo's plans for the future.
    Keep shipping great products and everything else will fall into place.
