    I have been working at Motorola Solutions full-time

    Pros

    -Working for Fortune 500 Company
    -Essentially a public safety monopoly, and the only organization in the business to truly have an end-to-end communication platform
    -Prefer to promote from within; lots of room for upward advancement and many different paths you can take
    -Unique Sales structure that allows for multiple reps/AE’s to work together on an opportunity
    -Travel opportunities
    -Flexible work schedule and solid work/life balance

    Cons

    Management approach can be “sink or swim”; you must be autonomous/self starting to succeed

    Pros

    Great flexibility, great opportunity to work in teams

    Keeping doing what you're doing! It would be nice to continue to grow in size.

    I have been working at Motorola Solutions (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Named as a "Best Place to Work in IT" for successive years since 2016, the IT department at MSI is top notch. We are culture creators, innovators, and we push to make exponential breakthroughs. IT Leadership pushes all to take risks, be a cause in the matter, and supports experimentation. We must be accountable, of course, so we don't "break the business" but everyone here has the opportunity to make a difference. As a whole, MSI has an excellent global mix of diversity in age and ethnicity.

    Cons

    I would love to see the culture of the IT department extend outward into MSI. Not every department challenges the status quo. There is still some folks willing to let perfection be the enemy of good so the appetite for risk varies greatly at times.

    Working from home
