    Pros

    The number one reason to work at Qualcomm is for the work culture. The engineers are professional, talented, humble, and treat each other with respect. Also, anyone interested in being at the forefront of the explosive mobile technology industry should certainly consider working here.

    Cons

    There are few cons to working at Qualcomm. Some who only value compensation might complain that Qualcomm doesn't offer the highest pay of all software engineering positions out there, but the compensation is still pretty good, and the other perks and benefits more than make up for the difference.
