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.
benefits, promotions, interesting work, good compensation

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.
Inspected PC boards and assembled cell phones. Learnt how to assemble cell phones. Management was super and nice. There was a variety of different types of culture. Hardest part of job was to work every Saturday 11 hours.
free lunches now and then
worked 3 days one week and 4 days the next

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
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.
Great place to work for 3 years, company moved to another location which was too far from my home to drive. The company had great benefits with good work hours on 3 and 4 days with 12 hours shifts.
great hours and good people
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.
Food at Google was the best...
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
Very interesting job
it was Temporary
