9 months Experience

Modem Systems Test Engineer (Current Employee)
Hyderābād (India)

I have been working at Qualcomm full-time for less than a year

ProsCompensation is good, Time flexibility

ConsHow much you are enjoying depends on which team you are working and under whom you are working. In few team very less work and few team too much work. Work is not so innovative Donkey work in our team. But one good thing is you can Change team after 1 year. Qualcomm conducts many training and KT sessions but no usage you will be loaded with a so much work that you will not get any time to attend.

Advice to Senior ManagementDepends on team to team. Indian Managers are acting as Slaves to US heads. No guts to say no to Higher authority. finally too much work for Engineers.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
