    Pros

    Good benefits and flexibility of work schedule.

    Cons

    Although Motorola had been experiencing loses for many years, it seems that nothing management does can reverse that trend. Layoffs have become commonplace, employee moral is at rock-bottom, and the company has gotten even worse since being bought by Google. Employees are no longer treated as an asset, but rather as a commodity, and instead are thrown out like yesterday's trash at the whim of management, without consideration for how well an individual performs or what they contribute. Since August, 2012, 5,200 Motorolans have been laid off, the set-top box division is being sold off, and the entire supply chain organization is being sold and/or outsourced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out how to save money WITHOUT eliminating hard-working employees. Google has destroyed Motorola's corporate culture to the point where no one will want to work for Motorola. Given how highly Google is supposedly rated a place to work, you would never know it by the way the people at Motorola Mobility have been treated since being acquired by Google.
