When I worked there it was very fast paced. We were making cellular phones, a lot of them. The people were nice. The supervisor was a very demanding person.

Lead cross functional teams to develop accessories for Motorola cell phones. Worked with the individual phone teams to ensure the accessories met all phone team requirements. I was promoted from the factory and learned marketing, being involved in cross functional teams, trained to lead them. Learned a great deal about the technical aspects of charger for cell phones by working with both electrical and maniacal engineers as well as product safety and FCC regulations. The accessories section of Motorola was well run by management. Open door policy was real. The hardest part of the job was the late hours running those global cross functional teams. Many time the conference calls were at 10 pm to include the development stakeholders. The next morning we had calls at 7 am to make sure all local development teams had the required program Management meeting to ensure product launch with each new phone. Work Life Balance issues. Leading the cross functional teams was my favorite part of the job, I learned so much and we made our launch date goals. They also had great benefits.
Pros
benefits, promotions, interesting work, good compensation
Cons
work life balance

The everyday job was the same as JLL's. The maintenance department was outsourced to JLL. Except for a certain few we all kept our same jobs, pay and tenure.

When I worked there it was the best job for me at the time. One draw back is the long days, though, You worked a 4/3 shift so it could get a little long, But you had every other weekend off and days during the week. Overtime was not mandatory however it was plentiful and you could work if you wanted. There was also OT in the distribution center if there weren't opportunities in your department. Overall it was a good place to work, Too bad they decided to move the plant.
Pros
Good enviroment
Cons
Plant closed

Motorola manufactured cellular phones and was a fast paced environment. I worked in the Call center which was discontinued once the cellular industry added those features to the phone where the consumer no longer had to call in with questions.

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.

Motorola was an excellent company to work for, and provided me with a secure & challenging job for over 20 years. toward the end, it became very cut throat and stressful due to the cutbacks, layoffs and pending purchase by Google.

Worked towards a numbers goal every day while maintaining quality. Many of the jobs were an assembly line type, but I was fortunate enough to be in a few different positions. Supplied all parts and supplies to the lines in an inventory control position.

Company is driven for training. Company relocating was not an avenue I could explore at the time. They did offer to assist with relocation. Considerate of all employees needs.

Towards the end, it was difficult to maintain a high sense of loyalty as everyone has jumped ship. Since MOT hit rock bottom and began to stabilize, people I know that are still there are very happy.

In my last role at Moto, I was in charge of a small group located in Sunnyvale. We were an "experiment" charged with developing jointly with Google three mobile phone models based on a new operating system called Android. It was the right path for a successful future, but unfortunately it was not fully supported by the company's chairman who believed that the value of Motorola was in its patent portfolio and proprietary technology. As history quickly revealed, Google's model of open source SW development was more competitive from both a time to market and cost basis -- and ironically led to Google eventually acquiring Moto's handset division.
Pros
Food at Google was the best...
Cons
The smartest people weren't given the reins.

I basically was responsible for all necessary details to run the office, I scheduled meetings including international travel, hotel reservations and whatever else necessary to facilitate a successful meeting. I worked with a wonderful group of people. Again, it was a temporary position. I was sad to leave because this was the first job I got after moving from Kansas City to Chicago. It !was a very difficult adjustment to relocate and the staff in the sales office welcomed me
Pros
Very interesting job
Cons
it was Temporary
