Pros

Working at Qualcomm exposes you to hundreds of different products in several markets. Mobile is not the end of the story. Cultural and intellectual exchange are part of the job. On top of this, good salary and benefits contribute to satisfaction.

Cons

The company is large and established, therefore career opportunities may be limited with respect to smaller companies. Communication across boundaries is sometimes difficult.

Advice to Management

Ideas from the bottom should have more opportunities to bubble up.

    Pros

    Excellent RSUs, bonus, health plan and vacation time. Average base salary. QCOM offers engineers the opportunity to work on a variety of technologies.

    Cons

    Many old timers promoted to managerial positions lack planning /leadership skills. Daily status meetings (mornings, evenings and weekends) makes work/life integration difficult. Too many processes negatively impact the execution of the projects in a very competitive market.

    Advice to Management

    Mergers and aquisuitions should be followed by a good integration strategy. Consider promoting people with both technical and leadership skills to managerial positions
