    I have been working at Motorola Mobility full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. Flexibility to work from home. Talented & diverse group of people. The new office location is great.

    Cons

    I cannot think of many cons. I think there needs to be more opportunities for growth. There are too many organizational changes within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    organization needs more stability

    Very open environment, as long as you are self-motivated, and what to learn new technologies and skills, the company won't block u from learning it.

    Cons

    A lot of snacks, water and soda. Lunch is not provided, you are on your own. It would be great if there is a gym inside the company.

    Pros

    Great incubator for technologists and engineering talent. Good people who are smart and hardworking.

    Cons

    Hyper competitive mobile category requires one clear focused strategy. Lack of business planning. Too many products chasing too few opportunities to breakthrough the clutter. Lack of focus on delivering products that meet unmet or unarticulated consumer needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place fewer bets on bigger opportunities to deliver huge leap in utility and value for consumers.

    Pros

    Highest caliber of people (competency and character) imaginable!

    Cons

    Defocused organization, overlead by finance. Playing not to lose, rather than playing to win.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on few products and high-value markets only. Couple that with the true innovation that originally built Motorola as one of the greatest companies ever.

    Pros

    Compensation, bonuses and stock options/RSUs were great.

    Cons

    When I worked for them there were several rounds of layoffs with the run up to the Google Acquisition, then the spinoff of Home to ARRIS.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue providing good benefits and financial incentives to the staff to keep everyone focused and motivated.
