Principal Engineer (Former Employee) –  South Plainfield, NJFebruary 2, 2015
This company designs, develops and manufactures mobile phones. I've learned product development from concept to production to customer acceptance, and wireless communication technologies (AMP, TDMA, GSM and CDMA). I also had a lot of fun participating in company sponsored tennis and ping pong tournaments where tennis courts and ping pong tables were onsite amenities. Some of the biggest challenges were user friendly design, battery performance and customer acceptance

Senior Optical Engineer (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILJanuary 22, 2015
Management is poorly structured. Most management are closely knit and spend the whole day together in meetings. There is no structure. And very little actual management.

Motorola has supported and helped me to achieve both my personal and professional goals. There's an endless wealth of knowledge in their employees and, while sometimes overworked, wiliness to embrace change and challenges.

I worked at Motorola before Google announced its acquisition. Really enjoyed the history and culture. Unfortunately, the company has been sold again, and it went through several restructurings.

Fairly decent place to work for, but still has ways to go to be in the top tier
Senior Staff Engineer, (Former Employee) –  Libertyville, ILJune 24, 2014
A typical day is usually hectic, any plans made ahead of time for the day can be thrown out as soon as you get in, hence it might not be the right fit for everyone. I personally doesn't trust the Senior Leadership Team, but again this is based on my own views. The best part about the place is you can get to work on some cool stuff and the people doing the work are in some instances top caliber talent and great people to work with. The hardest part is at time your planned day get thrown out of kilter addressing issues and you are still expected to meet, whatever goals were planned for the day, makes for an extremely long day

Fast-paced environment - unnecesarily
Business Ops (Former Employee) –  Libertyville, ILMay 16, 2014
Decision Making:
Motorola Mobility is very fast-paced, but not because of the industry. It is because they rush to make a decision without fully analyzing the pros & cons - which in turn, causes the need to QUICKLY rework what should have been planned properly from the beginning.

Environment:
Has evolved to being very cut-throat. The people are so accustomed to layoffs that a 'fight' mentality is now pervasive through most departments. This is sad, because it used to be a genuinely caring work environment.

Duplicity:
On one hand the new company leaders wants people with either advanced degrees or degrees from top-tier schools. But on the other hand, in many cases when the existing management does not have those credentials, the person with degree is not valued and sometimes even envied by some managers. (not a good place to be)
Pros
pays very, very well
Cons
tough, cut-throat work environment
