Paid me for working about 14 hours per day, 6.5 days a week, often alone. One of their smaller sites, with few if any visits from their customers. Kept in contact with two more of their sites for the same project by email. Visited their Phoenix, Arizona site to help with any questions about putting the first version of this design into physical design of the chip.

I returned to the Valley of the Sun to work for Motorola. I've worked at several locations and was part of the split that left to begin On Semiconductor. I would be very happy to return to On Semiconductor if an appropriate position opens.
Contractor System Administrator (Former Employee) – Schaumburg, IL – April 10, 2018
The company main office has many benefits, was there short term as a contractor and cannot say much other then the company has good growth and stability. The culture is open and people are willing to listen. Work was well defined with clear instructions.
Project Manager (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 10, 2018
Motorola was a excellent place to be employed, from the work place to the people. Each manager took interest in what was best for their employees and listened to what they had to say. They groom you to move forward and care about you and your career. The way they handle work/life balance was one of the greatest benefits of working for Motorola, it made you want to go to work each day knowing that they had your best interest in mind. The hardest thing was watching the company spiral down and the loss of great employees.
Technical leader with diverse and variable company culture.
Senior Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Schaumburg, IL – April 8, 2018
Motorola is a company devoted to engineering prowess. With divestitures of various parts of the organization in the recent and not so recent years, the focus, goals and management have been regularly shifting.
Cellular Manufacturing Operator (Former Employee) – Libertyville, IL – April 6, 2018
Motorola was the greatest and at the end the worst company I ever worked for. Over ten years I watched the culture erode away. They would literally take a group of employees from an area and lay them off because they had outsourced your position.
Network Technical Specialist II (Current Employee) – Schaumburg, IL – April 6, 2018
Fast paced environment. Good opportunity for relocation or job growth. Great benefits, but terrible work life balance. Acknowledgement of successes for the company limited, more expected than celebrated.
Great benefits, free lunches or beverages and company activities if you work in the right groups, if you do not NA. If you do get laid off, possible to change roles sometimes.
Lack of work life balance, High rate of layoffs, Technology very specific to Motorola and all skills will not transfer elsewhere.
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) – Mesa, AZ – April 2, 2018
best place to work. always learning something new each day. The eng. and tech were always available with their time and information. The hardest part of my job was each day we had a different set of trouble shooting skill set that we had to used.
Company that constantly reinvents itself but keeps true to its legacy
Vertical Marketing Manager, North America (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – March 29, 2018
Motorola is an engaging and fast-paced company that currently seems to be recruiting young and fresh talent. They are communication leaders that constantly reinvent themselves by investing in companies that can deliver new and exciting technologies to the their clients.
MOTOTRBO Technical Support Technologist System II (Current Employee) – Schaumburg, IL – March 28, 2018
There is a lot that goes on in the company. The customer base is very demanding and cost savings seems to be a higher priority than keeping their customer base happy. People did their jobs well and the company is making high profit margins, yet we still send jobs to other countries to meet shareholder demand.
MSI is very generous with Paid Time Off
Pay does not match the degree of difficulty of job responsibilities
