Senior Electronics Technician (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZApril 13, 2018
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.

Excellent Place to work
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILApril 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.
Pros
work life balance
Cons
the commute limitations/restrictions

Technical leader with diverse and variable company culture.
Senior Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Schaumburg, ILApril 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.

Was great to start
Cellular Manufacturing Operator (Former Employee) –  Libertyville, ILApril 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.

Interesting company to work for
Network Technical Specialist II (Current Employee) –  Schaumburg, ILApril 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.
Pros
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.
Cons
Lack of work life balance, High rate of layoffs, Technology very specific to Motorola and all skills will not transfer elsewhere.

Very poor management and leadership. Unconsistant hours, sometimes you can get overtime, other times they cut days of the week out of your schedule. Severe lack of discipline and organization.

Questionable future
Engineering Manager (Former Employee) –  Schaumburg, ILApril 2, 2018
In my opinion, there has been a downward movement in the company for the last ten years.
Retention of us-based talent, quality, growth, and customer satisfaction has been placed as a low priority.
Pros
Can't think of any
Cons
Low collaboration, few employees like to go into office space provided, so most work from home.

A lot of work and little gratitude
MOTOTRBO Technical Support Technologist System II (Current Employee) –  Schaumburg, ILMarch 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.
Pros
MSI is very generous with Paid Time Off
Cons
Pay does not match the degree of difficulty of job responsibilities

Quality less important at Motorola Soltuions
Quality Data and Metrics Manager (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMarch 26, 2018
Motorola solution s a fast paced and interesting place to work, but the management there very myopic and not focused on quality.

Particularly in the Customer Loyalty area where they regularly receive negative feedback for which little to nothing is done.
Pros
Decent benefits
Cons
Quality and metrics are apparently not that important.
