    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Learn a lot initially
    - San Diego is a great place to live

    Cons

    - Limited career growth - if you request a different project after completing your current assignment, you are discouraged and given boring tasks
    - Expected to work on one project and only project for entire duration at Qualcomm
    - Lots of politics - people take credit for work you do, ask for help behind directors/VPs
    - Line management - your review, bonus and raise are determined by a third party whom you see only during review period. Your manager/tech lead has very little impact during the bonus/promotion meetings.
    - Compensation is very low compared to salary in Bay Area. San Diego is not that much cheaper to live
    - New innovation in hardware only. As a software engineer you will only be responsible for bug fixes and hacks the hardware and system team will reincorporate into the next design]
    - No culture. No team building events, no company events. Teams are very distant, everyone is doing their own thing. Team members don't even eat lunch together most of the time! In the 3 years I have been here, my team has only had 1 team building event and there have only been 2 company events, 1 for a 25 year anniversary

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Get rid of Line Management, it only hurts competent employees
    - Provide opportunities to move out of projects so employees can learn new technologies

    Pros

    Benefits are still one of the best in San Diego.

    Cons

    Engineers are not given opportunity to get promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
