I worked at Qualcomm

Pros

Great perks
Smart People
Cool San Diego
State-of-the-art technology

Cons

Although it is a great place to work, bureacracy rules big time. Everything gets delayed, since there is a lot of hierarchy

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Initiate recognition and rewards for outstanding employees. re-organise the hierarchy with less or no bureaucracy. More work-life balance needed, since most employees spend time in office.

    Pros

    Always learning from people around you; management makes (mostly) smart decisions; can get a lot done in a short period of time.

    Cons

    tough to stand out from the crowd; stock has been stuck at 50 for years; pay is below industry standard; CDMA Technologies is the "slave pit" of QC.

    I have been working at Qualcomm

    Pros

    - Good benefits
    - Calm culture
    - Generally nice people

    Cons

    - Decent facilities
    - Salary packages not competent for non-engineering (non-core programming) employees
    - Very slow culture (need to be more action oriented)
    - Low visibility of career progression (slow promotions cycles - 4-5 yrs on an avg!)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to where people want to be in the next 3-5 yrs. Mentor program is existing but invisible. Managers sometimes try to micromanage. Go social.
