I have been working at Motorola Mobility full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Motorola has many good people that work there. They are hard working, friendly people to work with. If you get on a good product team, you feel good about what you're doing.

Cons

You always feel the year job is at risk. Programs get canceled frequently, making your 50-60 hour work weeks completely wasted.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please make sure before you start a program that it is something you feel will really go to end. It's really frustrating to work so hard on something that just gets canceled.
