    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    - successful company with good financial status
    - pockets of good people and good teams
    - small areas with challenging design work
    - flexible in work hours and schedule

    Cons

    - a fair number of engineers have limited social and teamwork skills (to be expected based on the interview process)
    - work is not very challenging, mostly mindless bug fixes and porting
    - has fully transitioned to a big company that rewards heavy overtime but not anything else (wasn't this way originally)
    - promotes weak leaders who attempt to use fear (shouting, etc.) to motivate
    - highly directed work, low creativity, very strict adherence to processes (many of them weak or even detrimental to the business)
    - feedback for improvement no longer considered by upper management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is a reliable place to work and earn a paycheck. The company is focused on continuing to increase the cash flow for investors, and pays little attention to making it an innovative place for an engineer to be challenged. The company cannot be faulted for that...it is what it is.
