    I worked at Qualcomm

    Pros

    The team I was working with was great. There was a lot to learn. Hands on experience with Wireless technologies.

    Cons

    Company is still not as advanced in terms of usage of people. No proper planning or delayed work scenarios due to the same.

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

    Pros

    - Great History and great technology and great potential
    - Teams are very talented engineering wise, a lot of smart, knowledgeable people

    Cons

    - Growing middle management that does nothing except politicking around
    - Unable to execute in adjacent markets as well as core business (Modems, App processors)
    - Outside HQ, company culture is missing and non existence

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Qualcomm in SD is great, but to be successful you need agile in all major offices and focus in establishing strong culture of innovation
    - walk the walk in encouraging technology innovation rather than focusing too much on Wall street

    Pros

    Work is okay. Nothing too complicated. Some pride in seeing phones fitted with qcom chipsets out on the street. San Diego is a great city to be in.

    Cons

    Fire fighting not fire proofing. Middle management layer seems to be increasing. Tends to be focused on short term fixes. I am amused to see how qcom always makes it to the top twenty companies to work for according to glassdoor. Which divisions do you check?

    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I've had the pleasure of working with Qualcomm for 5+ years. I love the Q and all the great people who work here. The benefits, bonus structure and 401 k structure cannot be beat. You pay literally nothing out of your check. The ESPP (for employees) is another great benefit to invest money with a quick return. Great visibility to upper management and opportunity to travel globally. Qualcomm lIves Up To its Ranking in top companies to work for.

    Cons

    Hard to get a higher base line salary increase with new merit system. Company is restructuring some of the perks for cost cutting measures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to manage up and communicate with your manager. If you have the talent they will want to keep you.
