Pros

Industry leader, cutting-edge development, decent salary, good health insurance.

Cons

Little/no reward for research or new ideas from management indicating the company is no longer interested in future technologies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

People making decisions sometimes do not have right technical background. Instead of always looking from top, please try to look from a different angle sometimes.

    One of the most boring jobs I've ever had

    I have been working at Qualcomm

    Pros

    The benefits at Qualcomm are very good -- free medical/dental/vision. Decent 401K match. ESPP is good too (stock is doing very well). Free gym membership. There's a good work/life balance here. Compensation is also pretty good (but I can't comment on the bonus plan).

    Cons

    This was one of the most boring jobs I ever had. It turned out to be more of a sustaining/maintainence role. Bug fixing occupied about 80% of my time. There's very little feature development going on in San Jose. Most of the significant work is happening in India.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more effort into assigning work and projects to San Jose based engineers so that they'll feel as if they have a stake in the success of QCA.
