    I worked at Zebra Technologies part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with, great place to get an internship. A lot of fellow students especially over the summer. Many interns really liked their bosses. Just a nice place overall.

    Cons

    Not many from my standpoint. They seem to have some good benefits and pay.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Zebra Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Great potential, strong talented staff. Many folks are dedicated to the company. Printer marketshare is dominating. Company is always looking to innovate. Good balance of process vs. execution.

    Cons

    Company is still dealing with rapid growth through multiple acquisitions. Strong focus on establishing a corporate culture, but the positive messages from that seems to be lost on many managers. Recognition for outstanding work is random and seems to be greatly driven by politics and personal relationships. Many see personal growth as being stagnant.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the great talent and culture that already exists. Senior management needs to spend more time with the staff. Make sure salaries are competitive as the major engineering centers in the US are in high cost of living areas.

    I have been working at Zebra Technologies full-time

    Pros

    - Work/life balance
    - Work remote

    Cons

    - Reactive management approach repeatedly cuts growth/transform projects to hit short term goals
    - Very slow to react to customer needs
    - Very slow rate of change across the organization
    - No young talent that is being molded for future growth
    - The entire company runs on waterfall thinking

    Advice to Management

    Motivate the company to act on a clear priority and follow through for once. Going through five years of culture initiatives with different consulting groups leading the charge isn't going to get the results you would like either.

    I have been working at Zebra Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Honestly, nothing. The situation is getting unmanageable after acquiring Motorola Enterprise Division and selling the Wireless Division to Extreme Networks.

    Cons

    Honestly... I noticed Zebra is monitoring what people wrote here. Some of the unusual good reviews seem to be fake and short.
