    I have been working at Motorola Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Independence, customers are great to work with, Motorola is considered a leader in our segment. I like the acquisitions we have been making.

    Cons

    No track to advance to better positions in the company, stagnant, those who are friendly to bosses get better jobs without history of success or proof of leadership. They fail, then back to the drawing board. It's a nasty cycle.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your people's track records and history of performance. Advance those people, not the ones who nestle up to you.
