I worked at Qualcomm full-time (More than 3 years)
Salary was on par with what other companies pay in Silicon Valley. But you get to live in beautiful San Diego! Bi-annual bonuses and merit increases RSU bonuses although those will be dwindling down in terms of numbers of RSUs given out Didn't have to pay any premiums for family healthcare (It changed later in 2015 and now employees have to pay for their spouses)
The most politically charged company I ever worked for in my life. If you don't know how to navigate inter office politics and make friends on the top, you are doomed. The company is bloated and hired way too many people in the last 5 years

Get rid of many old timers who no longer bring any value. Many of them are waiting and praying to get a severance package so they can leave the company and do something else. Most of these people are very unhappy in their positions, technically incompetent and no longer fit to manage groups of people.

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Qualcomm.
It was a very pleasant process. There were two interviews. I had one in-person interview where the guy asked me a few behavioral questions and a few coding questions. He seemed genuinely interested on the things in my resume, which was awesome! The other interview was over the phone and I was asked a brain teaser and a few other coding questions. Overall, the process went very smoothly.

Who is Qualcomm, and what do we ...
