    Current Employee - Senior Program Manager in San Diego, CA

    I have been working at Qualcomm

    Pros

    Leading edge technology and opportunity for acquiring technical knowledge

    Cons

    Extremely long hours, rude and lousy middle and senior-level management (Dir, VP & Sr. VP level), chaotic, lack of processes, go-with-the-crowd-attitude, do not appreciate out-of-the-box thinking, don't give credit when credit is due, nepotism is in full effect! It doesn't matter if you are completely incompetent, as long as you know a senior-level manager, you will get in and you will have the doers working under you to do the job so that you can take the credit for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve your processes so the employees don't have to work 60+ hours to get something done that could be accomplished in 40 hours. Seriously review the knowldege-base and the managemnt skills of your Sr.and VP level management. Put a STOP to the growth in your middle management. They are NOT helping your operational efficiency!! Solicit direct input from your employees on the quality of their work environment. MONEY IS NOT EVERYTHING!!!
