    Pros

    Decent healthcare benefits, ESPP, 401K matching

    Cons

    The company culture has declined drastically in the past 5 years. This is an extremely political place to work, and if you're in with the good old boys, then you're set; if not, get ready to see your career stagnate. Reviews are not based on merit but instead on one's manager's and VP's perceptions. Very few women in senior technical roles, and very basic benefits for parents. Lactation rooms lack sinks and are adjacent to offices or meeting rooms. Instead of getting on board with equal maternity and paternity leave like most tech companies, the company provides the minimum mandated state leave and no more. HR is worthless; instead of addressing harassment and discrimination complaints, they state that they cannot protect the employee against retaliation (untrue in California). Multiple incidents of bullying, discrimination and harassment, even a couple of suicides, have not resulted in any attempts to improve the work environment. People are forced to come in when they are sick, work on weekends and nights, and work during vacation. Not to mention that compensation is not adjusted to market rates for employees who have been in the company for over 4 years. As a result, newer employees are paid 10-30% more than equally seasoned employees who have been loyal to the company for years. Hopefully Qualcomm can clean up its culture and get back to the great company it was - trimming the fat (and there's lots of it) will get the company back to its core values and allow it to innovate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promoting buddies - instead promote on merit
    Standardize the review process and have hard guidelines instead of leaving it subjective
    Pay all employees fairly
    Figure out why people are jumping off buildings and dropping like flies in the office, and do something about it instead of acting like nothing happened
    Address complaints about discrimination and harassment instead of threatening employees with retaliation

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
