    I worked at Motorola Solutions full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    At the time I was employed there was a lot of motivation to find another job before you were outsourced. Health benefits, 3% 401K match, some profit sharing

    Cons

    Constant management and personnel changes. Waiting to be tapped on the shoulder, sent to HR

    Advice to Management

    Former top management made so many bad decisions (look up the history) that they destroyed a very potentially great organization. Motorola Inc was divested, sold off and worn down to the current communications company that wouldn't survive without government contracts. It's management still defines "top-heavy."

    I have been working at Motorola Solutions full-time

    Pros

    In our division, working from home to complete your work is encouraged and acceptable. To start Motorola gives 22 days of vacation. The company has outings regularly as well.

    Cons

    There is a lot of travel involved and not regular travel. Pay is a bit lower than the areas average.

    Advice to Management

    Try to create more regular travel schedules and teams to go out with. Switching the teams make it difficult for people to gauge what the others are capable of
