    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Used to be a fun place to work where people actually cared. You manger actually cared about your career path and looked out for your growth.

    Cons

    Constantly outsourcing and downsizing. It's like walking on a ice covered lake in May. Always have to watch your step and watch for the swinging axe.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your people - they are the ones who made you a success before you started cutting their throats.
