Motorola is so freaking worthless as a company. So many of the managers there are nothing more than political animals trying to save their own ass or make someone else look bad...the one thing that struck me during my time there (when the Iridium project wipeout started the overall financial landslide we're seeing now) was that no one was honest.
Everyone talked out the side of their mouth, answered in code or gave half-true responses during meetings or one-on-one conversations. Didn't take me long to learn that you simply did whatever it took to get the job done - lie to people in other departments to get their help - whatever. Not that professionals elsewhere aren't full of it themselves (there are some like this everywhere you go) but it was just utterly pervasive at MOT. It wears on you. Not a day goes by where you don't have to watch out for someone who's trying to step on you, mislead you or otherwise fu*k you over somehow.
It's like each little group is its own company and has side-step or bad-bouth the other little groups in order to succeed. REALLY poor work environment. What we're seeing now is the result of that. In the end, no trust, no profits.
