I have been working at Qualcomm as an intern for less than a year

Pros

A very good place to do internship. The housing they provide to interns easily touches $3500/month! :)

Cons

The intern events are on facebook; but I don't have one!

    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time

    Pros

    Love working here! Leadership team is strong and very forward thinking. The environment is constantly changing due to the rapid of technology evolving. Pay is good, flexible work schedule, great health benefits.

    Cons

    Not easy to get promoted here. With the majority of the company being engineers, management has not fully bought into how marketing can help the business grow. The technology vision is clear but how Qualcomm wants to position itself as a brand is not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't wait until its too late to invest in your brand. You own the smartphone space and if you don't do anything to promote your brand, you'll lose your position as the industry leader when Intel comes barreling through and markets the heck out of their processors in smartphones.

    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Decent pay for the location
    Amazing weather in San Diego
    Stable (for now)

    Cons

    Big company so a lot of overhead
    Becoming more corporate
    Moving from office structure to cubicle farms

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need a better system of accountability so that employees are not afraid to take risks.
    Too much blame game.
