A good company with many highly skilled and well trained employees. Teams worked together cross functionally toward common goals and objectives.

A great place to work at when I started in 1995. Cell phone technology was relatively new and rapidly developing. There was always something new going on and it was exciting to work with very motivated people.
Pros
Skilled, motivated co-workers. Synergy and dedication.
Cons
Tight time frames for product development and approval process.

Senior Staff Test Engineer (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 30, 2015
Has great engineers. Not so great sales, marketing, and senior leadership (overall - I'm sure there are some good folks) - judging from results.

Google did some great things to change the culture but at the end they didn't know (and didn't want to too much) how to run hardware manufacturer.

Lead Android Developer (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 23, 2015
Salary, work and family balance, huge focus on innovation, great teamwork and collaboration, diversity, on time product delivery, excellent products.
Outsourcing Engineering, lack of retention, no marketing plan or focus,
Consumers don't know how great Motorola products are due to lack of TV advertisement.

Engineering (Current Employee) –  Libertyville, ILAugust 28, 2013
Currently unstable. Hopefully will turn the corner soon under the ownership of Google and an infusion of the Google way of life. The new leadership is solid at the very top. The strategy is solid but with a great deal of risk. Employees work hard but are very paranoid due to numerous layoffs. A pending move from Libertyville to Chicago weighs heavy on the vast majority of the people. Commute times will double to quadruple for many folks.

It used to be a great place to work, but eroded over time due being acquired sold, re-acquired, sold, etc
Senior Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Horsham, PAJanuary 14, 2014
I was soo proud when Motorola bought General instruments in late 90s. I really was excited and couldn't wait to see how things unfolded and we got better as a result. But this was a pipe dream. The stock went from 183/share to bus fare at one point nearly 3/share. Division fiefdoms, family mismanagement, and constantly changing upper management only led to its demise. It really was a power house for 70 years and then, as usual us managers turned it inside out and upside down, which led to it being kicked out of DOW status by Wall Street for its poor performance. After working there many years, it was a place trying to re-invent itself even after Google Acquisition, but I am proud to say I was part of the digital TV revolution as a result, and we were part of a lot of firsts in the industry. I learned a lot about what NOT to DO in a large fortune 50 company.
Pros
Great legacy company with great innovators, and early management of quality
Cons
mis-management, and poor insight into cell market, led to their demise. The selloff to Google then Arris also impacted their success

Manager Preload Program Management / Senior PM (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CANovember 8, 2012
Solid technology company, but company focus has been on hardware design and UI, not the whole solution.

Management is refocused under Google leadership, but downsizing may have been over done.

Great people working in a friendly environment.

Teams could and should work better together.

Working on cool consumer electronics was the best part of the job.
Pros
make cool stuff!
Cons
company focus has been on hardware and ui, not whole solution.
