I worked at Qualcomm

Pros

It is fair to say that the interns are high class citizens. Regular employees are jealous about the intern activities. San Diego is a nice city.
Decent and spacious parking lots.

HR cares interns. It's true.

Cons

Cafeteria food is not of a great quality, sadly. The unlimited supply of soda will hurt the health of employees.

Is FloTV a good business decision?

    Pros

    -> You can do a lot of work without getting paid much.

    Cons

    - > Qualcomm HR is really really bad and they try to take advantage of people thats why they always go and hire people from companies who have recently laid off people because in desperate times people are ready to take up any position and at any salary, they specially do that with international's working here. I have not seen any other similar company do this.

    -> Qualcomm wants you to work all day and night and then doesn't want to reward you for it, not even a pat on the back.

    -> they have tons of directors, yes Qualcomm likes to give lofty positions to people and they have so much hierarchy in terms of positions that a person joining at a lower level feels like a useless worm here.

    -> the so called upper management never cares to talk to employees.

    -> Promotion system is totally vague and seems highly unjust.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - > Keep an eye on what your hiring people are doing.
    -> Reward people based on their work and not if they are friends with you.
    -> For godssake talk to everyone under you once in a while at least.

    Pros

    Right now, stable company to work for

    Cons

    no recognition, no promotion if you do work, no promotion if you don't speak language other than english, no promotion if u don't work late even if you come at 5.00 AM, no promotion if you say NO to your lead, no promotion if you stress on quality

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the concept of visibility to productivity for evaluating employees. Because many are visible and get goo pie, but how much their contribution?????
