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

Pros

Motorola has many good people that work there. They are hard working, friendly people to work with. If you get on a good product team, you feel good about what you're doing.

Cons

You always feel the year job is at risk. Programs get canceled frequently, making your 50-60 hour work weeks completely wasted.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please make sure before you start a program that it is something you feel will really go to end. It's really frustrating to work so hard on something that just gets canceled.

    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Focus on research and innovation, particularly forward-looking company in a challenging industry.
    Interesting advanced technology, with many intelligent co-workers who care about their work.

    Cons

    Company underwent many changes (Company split, then Google took over). As a result, management quality deteriorated.
    Job security was never great, but has dropped dramatically since the Google buyout.
    Used to have good work-life balance, with telecommuting and flexible work schedules. However, new management has changed all that.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
