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

    Pros

    + Work life balance
    + Good pay
    + Great benefits
    + Good, smart people
    + Stability

    Cons

    - Lifers are dragging the company down. They fill up the middle management ranks, and prevent new employees from rising up.
    - Lack of growth opportunities
    - Dry, boring company culture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the fat. Get rid of the lifers who have been sitting on their laurels for a decade. Make room for the new generation of motivated engineers.
