    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pay has always been great.

    Cons

    I agree that if you don't have friends at the top it's quite difficult to be happy. When sharing cultural issues around Qualcomm a friend of mine put it this way "I'm not sure if you work in a high school or a gulag" - that says it all.

    Advice to Management

    It would be good if you actually managed the company. Believe it or not, just pulling a bloated salary and shutting your eyes isn't managing.

    Pros

    HQ in San Diego. Great benefits (Base salary 401K, ESPP, RSU, Bonus, Health ins. etc..). Many talented people. Lots of opportunities for personal growth inside the company.

    Cons

    Not a lot of free perks (e.g. food). Some hiccups since it lots few important accounts. Too many redundancy that can be easily eliminated.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down on the non-engineers redundancy part but keep the engineers.
