Motorola Mobility is a fantastic place to work
Software Architect (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAFebruary 12, 2013
I worked in the "Home" division of Motorola Mobility. I got to work alongside many industry all stars. The management team is top notch. Plus, of course, it's always great getting to work on bleeding edge products and R&D projects.

Best in class, all around.

Sorry to leave.
Pros
industry heroes right down the hall from my desk, r&d projects were stellar, management **very** receptive to new ideas.
Cons
california just wasn't for me.

Not a stable place to work as of right now.
Test Technician/Operator (Current Employee) –  Libertyville, ILFebruary 7, 2013
Every quarter people are worried about losing their jobs. Every town hall meeting the management team says the same thing we are losing money, we have to reduce costs. Its very hard to concentrate on your job when your worried about losing it.
Maybe when they move downtown things will get better, by then hopefully the layoffs would have stopped.
Pros
get to see and feel new products before the market
Cons
job security, no loyality, no recognition, no bonus rewards

Demanding job, but employees well compensated
Supply Chain Quality (Former Employee) –  Plantation, FLJanuary 10, 2013
MMI employees are a group of high caliber, dedicated professionals. Motorola expects a lot, but management can also be flexible with work schedule when business allows. In the global environment, it's no 9 to 5 job. Excellent PTO benefit, if you can manage to use it before Feb 1 each year.
Pros
compensation, benefits, great team to work with
Cons
lack of profitability has led to several reductions in force in the past few years

SR. ENGINEERING MANAGER, INNOVATION PRODUCTS (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CADecember 25, 2012
Motorola is a great place to work if you like working in an organized environment. Motorola has a rich history of innovation and if you are in the innovation group, you can work on the latest technologies. Groups are specialized, so it is difficult to work on anything outside your area.
Pros
organized and fun place to work.
Cons
get stuck in one area of work.

Software / Hardware Integration Specialist (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILNovember 7, 2012
Was taught and researched methods to make the department run more efficiently. My co-workers were a knowledgeable and we complemented each others skills well.

The hardest and also the most enjoyable part of the job was being on the bleeding edge of technology.
Pros

Cons
no real room for advancement.
