    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work is okay. Nothing too complicated. Some pride in seeing phones fitted with qcom chipsets out on the street. San Diego is a great city to be in.

    Cons

    Fire fighting not fire proofing. Middle management layer seems to be increasing. Tends to be focused on short term fixes. I am amused to see how qcom always makes it to the top twenty companies to work for according to glassdoor. Which divisions do you check?

    Pros

    With so many employees, somebody knows the answer and can help

    Lots of actors. If you don't have a buddy to explain things, it will be slow learning for you.

    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I've had the pleasure of working with Qualcomm for 5+ years. I love the Q and all the great people who work here. The benefits, bonus structure and 401 k structure cannot be beat. You pay literally nothing out of your check. The ESPP (for employees) is another great benefit to invest money with a quick return. Great visibility to upper management and opportunity to travel globally. Qualcomm lIves Up To its Ranking in top companies to work for.

    Cons

    Hard to get a higher base line salary increase with new merit system. Company is restructuring some of the perks for cost cutting measures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to manage up and communicate with your manager. If you have the talent they will want to keep you.
