    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Santa Clara, CA

    I worked at Qualcomm full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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