Incredible place to work

I have been working at Qualcomm full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Very professional and friendly coworkers. Everyone made me feel welcome from day one. The perks of working at Qualcomm are like nothing you will see at your normal company. All the break rooms are stocked with complimentary drinks, fruits, snacks, etc.. The pay is great ( for those who say its average they need to get real.. Very good considering the job climate right now). Health benefits are incredible. They offer $0 deductible health benefits. This would have cost me 9k a year at my previous employer for a family plan. On site gyms with tv's. Bi annual pay bumps. Stock options. What more could you ask for?

Cons

Tough to get a job here.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
