    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 (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.

    I worked at Qualcomm as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    - People at Qualcomm are talented and yet they are very helpful. Most of the people I worked with have open doors policy.
    - Qualcomm has one of the best internship programs and interns are regularly showered with fun activities.
    - Interns are automatically being considered for return internship opportunities or a full time position.
    - There are many career opportunities in the Qualcomm HQ, employees are encouraged to explore areas that fit their passion.

    Cons

    None that I could think of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Perhaps creating more collaboration areas for people to come together and discuss their projects.
    - Traditional meeting rooms are great for recurring meetings to discuss the project status, but a collaboration area could be used by engineers to sit together and code throughout the day/week.
