    I worked at Qualcomm full-time (more than 3 years)


    * Good sick/vacation time policies for professional-level employees (different policies for admin, entry level, etc.), on-site doctor's office at HQ
    * Numerous activities for employees (movies in the auditorium, discounts from theme parks, summer lunchtime events)
    * Top tech company to work for in San Diego


    * Work-life balance means they add fun things to your 40+ hrs/week and expectation of reading e-mail 7 days a week, day and night
    * Some groups are better, more functional, more enjoyable than others

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'd be happy with fewer perks if it meant not getting chided for waiting until Monday morning to respond to Sunday night e-mails.
