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

    Pros

    Great work culture
    Amazing intern benefits (housing, relocation, paid trip to San Diego, SF Giants game)
    Good work-life balance
    Excellent period for the company growth-wise

    Cons

    My original intern project was well-planned out but once my mentor quit, I was re-assigned. So project given is hit and miss.

    Good starting point for career in Silicon Valley

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance

    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in San Jose, CA
    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in San Jose, CA

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

    Pros

    - Qualcomm has some cool hardware teams in Silicon Valley.
    - Can be a great place to pick up some embedded software or test engineering skills.
    - Good work-life balance
    - Free drinks/sodas

    Cons

    - Not as many opportunities as San Diego HQ
    - Feels like projects in the Bay Area are treated as experimental, and HQ is fine cutting entire teams/divisions
    - Takes a little too long to get promoted. Some employees deserve a promotion at least a year before it finally happens.
    - Salary is noticeably less than similar companies nearby, but Qualcomm's health, bonuses, and RSU program outweigh most companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are tons of amazing companies for software engineers in Silicon Valley. There needs to be more reasons for software engineers to choose Qualcomm over other companies. Qualcomm's benefits are great, but not as appealing to young talent as the perks/benefits of other companies in the area.

    Qualcomm's is working on some very innovative and exciting projects in the Bay Area. Why not give employees more of an exciting environment and culture, similar to nearby startups? Qualcomm's buildings feel too corporate for this region.
