    Pros

    Engineer still are the key asset of company

    Cons

    leadership doesn't know how to use the resource.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    First focus on the leadership. Culture is top down not bottom up. Then restructure to allow the culture flow down freely.

    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Cool products, smart people, abundant resources.

    Cons

    Toxic environment, everyone out for themselves, more time spent covering one's backside rather than working together for the greater good. Poor work-life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work hard to instill teamwork and don't reward back-stabbing and the political games.
