    I worked at Motorola Solutions as an intern (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Tons of opportunity for complete Project Ownership as an Intern
    - Very interesting projects in most teams
    - Fair work/life balance
    - Supportive management all the way up to VP levels.

    Cons

    - As a Junior, HR gave me until August 25th to respond to a return offer.
    - HR did not care that I was a returning intern. I was looking to come back, but in a different position and they did not transfer my return offer. I was then forced to turn it down and hope that I would get another position, but after a 15 min phone screen where all they asked was "are you interesting in this position," i was declined without feedback.

    Advice to Management

    - If you want interns to stay for more than one summer, attempt to accommodate their interests in other parts of the company.
