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

    Pros

    Great place to work
    Good perks+salary+training+projects

    Cons

    No work life balance and the management will expect you to be active all the time including night hours.
    Personal growth is sometime halted due to politics involved inside the teams.
    No proper communication between engineers and senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the life/time/health of employees before deciding on number of projects and time to complete the projects.

    Pros

    Qcom bangalore .., you will get challenging work (much more than 9 hrs though), flexible work hours. Lot of learning resources. this is highly process oriented company.
    IT support and automation in this company is at its best.

    Cons

    worst work life balance.
    sometimes you need to repeat the samething for multiple projects in unrealistic time frames.
    Not a place to stay for long years, some day you will be exausted in such a high stressfull work environment.
    sometimes artificial work pressure will be created by the team leads .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about the work life balance of the employees.
