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

Pros

Qualcomm really cares about its employees. I feel like my work is appreciated and that I have a direct impact to the bottom line of the company. Qualcomm is also pretty flexible with work/life balance in that if I need to work remotely to get things done, it is pretty easy.

Cons

We do go through our "crunch times" where we are expected to put in a little more time than the normal week. This seems to be the case for anywhere, and at Qualcomm it's not nearly as bad as what I have seen at others places.

Advice to Management

Continue to make the employees feel valued!

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, competitive pay, good people, and a unique company structure and culture that sets things apart from other companies of similar size.

    Cons

    Not as small a company as it once was (the small company culture is not as prevalent as it used to be), some groups are much better than others to work for, managers often have too much individual leeway with reviews when it is rare you actually work directly with your manager.
