    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Challenging work, very professional staff, great benefits, industry leader, room to grow.

    Cons

    If working in the largest division, QCT - (Qualcomm CDMA Technologies) - it's a SWEATSHOP, SWEATSHOP, SWEATSHOP... expect 60+ hour weeks routine unless you are very good at pushing back. That is why they are industry leader - they extract more output per employee than similar companies at the expense of the employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What's the point - they won't listen. It's a public shareholder driven company. No one cares about work-life balance. To solve that will require hiring more people which means a potential cut in profits. It's a machine. People only fool themselves when they think "a corporation cares about me"

    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Qualcomm has hired, with few exceptions, extremely talented people who are also easy to work with and continues to be able to attract the best and brightest. The standards at the company are very high and all of the facilities are what you would expect of a market leader, including well managed cafeterias, fitness facilities and reverse osmosis drinking water in every break room, which is a small detail but that says a lot about the people that have made this company what it is.

    Cons

    It's a fast paced work environment and we tend to run a little lean which is good if you like to stay busy but can sometimes feel like a drag when even taking one day off results in having to cram the next 2 days into 1.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Growth is good and part of the fun of being here but just keep a tight grip on the reins.
