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

    Pros

    Such a great company to work for, stock options were generous, holidays bonuses twice a year and annual reviews routine. The work was interesting and varied and had a great collection of dedicated engineering staff.

    The office environment was relaxed and friendly but efficient and focused. Management allowed the engineers to do what they do best, engineering with little interruption.

    Cons

    The only thing I would say I did not like was free phones had a low limit for personal calls.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, such good pedigree, others can only mimic in envy.

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits package. Nice friendly colleagues. Good flexibility.

    Cons

    Seemingly constant changes, to the point that change was the only constant. Lots of redundancies in recent years, which although necessary still difficult foe everyone.

    Pros

    opportunities to work with many different people and get involved on different projects. Internal movement and retraining encouraged.

    Cons

    like other tech companies, they look for the lowest cost centres so it's no unheard of to see whole departments and job functions be moved overseas to outsource companies, whether or not it achieves the same level of results as keeping it internal.

    Did not maximise on some great opportunities
    Lost a lot of money not seeing ventures through to revenue

    The main Motorola business provided much training and opportunity for career development.
    Chance to work with other, less broken, divisions.

    Bad and cliquey management,
    No opportunity for advancement in product group.
    Management more concerned with own careers than their reports.
    Byzantine and overly complex internal systems.

    Needs to enforce some of Tom Peters' ideas.
    Management as stewardship.
    Needs to be an internal tribunal for complaints against bad managers.
