I have been working at Qualcomm

Pros

It is exciting to work for a company that is so successful at what it does. Everyone is extremely smart and there is opportunity for personal and career growth. Also, you can't beat a location like San Diego. It's one of the best places in the world to live and work in.

Cons

Same as the downsides for working for any large company. It is sometimes hard to get a good idea of what your work will go to help out the strategic goals of the organization. In a smaller company a single person's work is directly impacting to the success of the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They could implement more efficient and frequent communication with the employees and have a way of transmitting ideas up to them.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and work life balance. Employees are smart and productive mostly. Management is supportive for outside work activities.

    Cons

    To some extent, QUALCOMM has become like a government office. People who work hard, really work hard but there are slackers who have been here for years and are not fired or laid off. The bonuses and salary is also not great. One problem being in QUALCOMM is that there is no other company in San Diego where you can move and so you have to be satisfied with the salary that QUALCOMM pays you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair. Give bigger bonuses and fire the slackers.
