Company culture and treatment of employees leaves much to be desired.

Senior Engineer (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA

ProsGood benefits, decent pay, great stock option profits in the last 10 years.

ConsEasy to get stuck in a situation where your team or environment is bad but there is no help from HR. HR is just a front end for legal - if you don't intend to sue, they don't really care what your work experience is like. Politics and personalities are rife in a company large enough that they should have a proper mechanism for reviewing and handling bad managers. Little respect for employees personal time, morale, trust.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good perks, heavy criticism, high workload, beautiful place.

    Software Engineer (Former Employee)
    Boulder, CO

    I worked at Qualcomm full-time for less than a year


    Pros: Boulder does not have a high cost of living yet employees get similar salaries… Cons: Hard work and overtime hours put in not appreciated, criticism heavy. Employees usually leave by 5 or 6, but at times can be working… Advice to Senior Management: Appreciate your employees more, don't judge on results, see how… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
