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

    Pros

    Competitive benefits, fun co-workers, flexible with working from home if needed, many office locations to accommodate employees from all over

    Cons

    Zebra is still stuck on some Motorola programs, even though it has been over 2 years since the acquisition (preventing the company from truly being "One Zebra").

    Many people got screwed over when Zebra decided to skip raises for half the employees (partial bonuses were added on only after they realized these employees were upset they were not getting any kind of raise).
