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

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in San Diego, CA

    I worked at Qualcomm full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The review is respect to QCT
    -Colleagues are friendly.
    -Has reviews twice a year
    -Management is not informed if you are trying to switching internally until you get an offer.
    -Better Work/Life Balance
    -Exposure to bring-up

    Cons

    -Not much challenging work
    -Attitude of finger pointing to other teams while resolving borderline issues.
    -Political in nature. Promotions are given more to favorites rather than on merit. This largely affected the morale of the team I was in and overseen the departure of great talent both internally and externally.
    -Not enough ownership is handed to engineer.
    -Lots of redundant teams doing the same work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the redundancy in teams by providing distinct responsibilities for them. Foster engineering culture and value an engineer. It doesn't take more than couple of sick leave for a talented engineer to move out!
