    I worked at Qualcomm

    Pros

    Fast learning and some technically brilliant people.
    Hard working colleagues

    Cons

    Some teams and management are good but most of them lack direction and mismanage everything for the sake of agression. Technically zero people in management and overdo things.
    Recruit more and give more work. Once my manager counted my mails from me to track my performance on that day

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give respect and take respect.

    Pros

    Job Stability, San Diego ( can be good or bad), Good technical work if you are willing to work hard, Benefits

    Cons

    Salary: Was offered lower than some start ups. HR plays hardball and leaves no room for negotiation ended up getting 6k more than originally quoted. You tend to start off with unhappy employees. Bonuses are probably industry's lowest.

    Team dynamics: Every group has its own kind of politics. Usually it will involve middle management, who does nothing but manage. Most of these people lack technical skills to remain in company, but due to extremely bad review process, they will linger on.

    Most of the middle management is content to manage up and give more work to people under them. So most of the engineers leave after 2-3 years. Bad talent sticks around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your review process is broken. Most of the middle management has gone from working to just asking statuses and reporting to their supervisors.
