They seem to throw a lot of people at one problem but it is a good job.

I worked at Qualcomm as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Great atmosphere and a great network of people to be around. Qualcomm campus is great.

Cons

It felt a bit too confined, and sometimes you would hear people complain about the job itself, though not often.

    A sweatshop in the USA. Long hours are inevitable. If you have a life at all, let it go before you work here.

    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some discounts around town for employees.

    Cons

    # No work- life balance.

    # Most work almost 12 hours everyday. Not the managers maybe, but for a new recruit, that is a minimum for months.

    # Salary is very less for the extremely demanding work.

    # Terrible work culture.

    # Half the work force is Temp employees. That says a lot about how Qualcomm wants to save more and pay the absolute least it can.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read the above comments. It's OK to let your employees have a life.
