    Pros

    Flexible timings, good work environment , nice culture, Pays well and good package overall with good benefits.

    Cons

    work/life balance is bad, Management decision making is very slow so as new product evolution cycle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should be transparent to employees in terms of road map and companies strategy.Feel like blind folded sometimes for the future.
    Promotions in the teams and Recognition for work should atleast be driven once in every quarter.
    Big teams should be split into small teams so that tracking individual contribution would be easier.

    I have been working at Motorola Mobility full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    1. good severance package is biggest pros for which people are not leaving the company
    2. work from home
    3. good policies

    Cons

    1. Total dissatisfaction among the employees, no rewards, full politics.
    2. Technical skills are totally died in managers. They are just waiting for severance.
    3. Managers are totally blind and incompetent and same is the reason for downfall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Change the severance policy in India and just watch what happens !!
    2. Try to understand the problems of lowest level engineers who actually run the show.
    3. The abstraction layer of manager between senior leadership and real engineer is very very dirty here, they just play dirty politics around.
