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

Pros

Flexible schedule, movement within different groups is relatively easy. Pretty of smart people to work with. Matrix management.

Cons

Contributions may not be fairly recognized, depends on manager's impression to a large extent especially in large groups. People who take it easy can be promoted earlier and get better bonuses vs others who work > 9 hours depending on group.

Advice to Management

Work on the cons above.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, very comfortable environment, kind and thoughtful senior leadership, great HR, fair to good compensation

    Cons

    slow to make decisions, company is now big and bureaucratic, while it's a comfortable working environment, it's almost too comfortable, difficult to get promoted from within, many clique's mostly rooted in those that have been there a long time, tenure method to get promoted not based on abilities or accomplishments, silo'd divisions and departments

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your thoughts and direction are better executed at the working level
