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

Pros

Qualcomm has a great work-life balance if your manager permits you to take advantage of it.
The medical benifits provided are great!

Cons

No integrity in IT Management
No recognition for new employees
Tasks/Projects/Milestones accomplished are not communicated up the management chain, especially in IT. Instead, the manager will take credit for great work and accomplishments and has at least one level below to blame when things don't go as favorably.
Very secretive and cowardly promotion and bonus/perk structures.
Will actively deny or make extremely difficult the ability to transfer internally.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

IT Management needs a complete re-haul. Pay the price to get AND KEEP good quality engineers and leaders.

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    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.
