    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time

    Pros

    - medical benefits. - many onsite technology lectures.

    Cons

    - lower than average compensation in terms of salary and stocks. - too much emphasis on political gains by directors/managers rather than emphasizing on actual engineering work. - nobody is willing to make critical decisions when it comes to risk management and setting priorities. - no specific promotion guideline, it's mostly dependent on personal relationships with upper management rather than actual contributions. - competent engineers keep leaving after getting fed up with too much politics.

    Advice to Management

    Need to realize they have to hire and keep top talents to become successful in this new climate with less royalty revenue. They can't keep alienating top talents with their politics.
