    Former Employee - Staff Manager in San Diego, CA

    I worked at Qualcomm full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, very comfortable environment, kind and thoughtful senior leadership, great HR, fair to good compensation

    Cons

    slow to make decisions, company is now big and bureaucratic, while it's a comfortable working environment, it's almost too comfortable, difficult to get promoted from within, many clique's mostly rooted in those that have been there a long time, tenure method to get promoted not based on abilities or accomplishments, silo'd divisions and departments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your thoughts and direction are better executed at the working level

    Former Employee - Senior Engineer in San Diego, CA

    I worked at Qualcomm full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefit
    Relax work style ( if you are a well experienced professional)
    Work life balanced

    Cons

    Lack of technical capabilities.
    Advanced design claimed here is indeed average design
    Brain wash employee they are making impact to the engineering society but indeed just doing routing work
    Politics everywhere, senior people think they know many things but just a bunch of frogs in the well
    If you are a fresh grad this is not the place for you. You will find it impossible to compete with people after couple years of experience in Qualcomm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing. Please keep that mindset so that other small companies have better chance to sell their IP to Qualcomm and make tones of money

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
