    I have been working at Motorola Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Large company but feels small - great culture ... always doing the right thing for employees. Transition to the downtown Chicago office is cool - amazing workspace - accessible to senior management. Lots of opportunity to grow - company is growing and doing great things.
    Love the purpose - "We help people be their best in the moments that matter"

    Cons

    No downsides that i am aware of. The company has already done right by me and for me.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your eye on diversity.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Exciting jobs that make a difference in the communities

    Cons

    Every one is working with this cloud (layoffs) over their head leading to negative work environment, fear to dare, thus lost of creativity
    Will not get promoted if you do not have connection to upper management

    Advice to Management

    1) Focus on your greatest asset and the revenue will follow
    2) Make sure internal positions are fairly advertised and that everyone has a fair chance to be interviewed and to get the job (if qualified), not just managers' buddies
    3) Most employees are working with this cloud (layoffs) over their head, which leads to negative work environment, the fear to dare, thus lost of creativity

    Pros

    Only pro is free snacks

    Cons

    You're not really a sales person. Depending on the territory they give you you will meet your quota. Most sales come from run rate making some people look good and others looking bad. Management likes to make promises that they have no intention on following through with. If this is your first job out of college go for it but if not stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and learn how to do your employees jobs.
