Doesn't Recommend
Approves of CEO

I worked at Qualcomm full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Boulder does not have a high cost of living yet employees get similar salaries and perks as compared to San diego. Lots of stuff to do at Boulder.

Cons

Hard work and overtime hours put in not appreciated, criticism heavy.
Employees usually leave by 5 or 6, but at times can be working late and round the clock.
San diego is given preference, feeling of being at a branch of a major company palpable.
Cafeteria not great.

Advice to Management

Appreciate your employees more, don't judge on results, see how much effort and time they've put in.

    The time to roll-over is something to be worked upon by the Management. Because of this, there is a possibility that most of the workspace could go to greener pastures.
