    I worked at Qualcomm full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Still the leader in wireless. Lightyears ahead of other mobile chip makers.

    Cons

    Qualcomm has had lots of burn out in the past couple years. During my exit interview, the HR person mentioned they are seeing a gradual increase in employees leaving due to burn out. I'm still in contact with my old co-workers there and it's the same story: long hours, constant pressure to meet aggressive schedules.

    If you are hell bent on working at Qualcomm, avoid the QCT division. They work their engineers like dogs there. I was part of the modem group when I left and they had the most aggressive working hours.

    While I still worked there, a QCT engineer committed suicide in 2010 which made big news, but there was another recent QCT suicide in June of 2012 that was hush hush possibly due to timing of a big PR announcement. This is what my sources who still work here tell me. Very sad.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to wireless and stop making stupid moves into broadcasting like MediaFlo.
