    I worked at Qualcomm full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great technology company with some extremely smart people, especially in the engineering and legal groups.

    Cons

    Extremely political structure. Promotions are not necessarily based on talent or accomplishments but in many cases, go to people who are more concerned with political positioning than doing a good job for the company. Many of those people are not below committing political sabotage to get ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Do not believe all that you hear but take the time to look below what your subordinates are telling you because they may not be telling the truth and in fact are trying to remove you from your position so that they can advance.

    Pros

    These days it is difficult to find a company that value their employees. Qualcomm is such a company. It is a fast moving workplace with real deadlines so things can get quite busy - but at the end of the day it is what makes Qualcomm so successful.

    Cons

    It is becoming a big company and sometimes it is difficult to navigate the waters. It takes a lot of effort to get a project off of the ground. At times it becomes difficult to interact with people on a project as they are spread throughout the world - that is just the way it is these days.

    Advice to Management

    Large companies need GOOD managers. It may suck at times, but keep up with those performance reviews.
