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

    Pros

    All permanent employees are technically very sound. Benefits are top notch. The management has strong outlook for the future.

    Cons

    All people are geographically separated fro a large project so getting hold of somebody or meeting/review timings become odd, but its just the way nowadays.

    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay . Good reward for hard work through promotion or Bonuses etc . Open door policy and Work from Home option.

    Cons

    No work life balance . More managers than Technical People . In some groups work is more like copy paste job simply execution .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People with Technical knowledge who are not so good in management should be treated on par with people who are good in managing people but less technical knowledge .People who are good at managing getting preference in promotion over technically good people . There should be Technical growth ladder for people good in technology .

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

    Pros

    Great place to learn for a beginner. Flexible working hours and great perks for performance that too semi-annual. Employees can move across teams with moderate difficulty.

    Cons

    One should be adaptable to high moving schedules. Lot of internal high level politics, but doesn't much matter to low level employees. Few low knowledgeable managers may make you fee irritated sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More opportunity should be given to employees to allow internal knowledge to flow across teams through proper sessions.

    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.
