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

Pros

Emphasis on innovation, excellent leadership, diverse set of projects to choose from and a very collaborative environment make working here blissful. In general, excellent quality of co-workers comprising of highly talented engineers led by strong, open and reliable senior management.

Excellent work-life balance, flexible hours, 100% health care, lots of clubs which are Qualcomm sponsored and support outdoor activities like lunch time bike-rides, lunch-time soccer, basketball, football etc.

Cons

Switching teams is difficult. It gets harder to switch teams unless the current project slows down.

Advice to Management

Management should be more flexible in terms of allowing engineers to switch between teams and should encourage employees to pursue their long term goals.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    The benefits are good. It is a stable job. The company is doing well in the mobile industry.

    Cons

    Management seems to have some problems with hierarchy. Leads and managers are always being shifted around.

    Also, product quality and innovation are of secondary value to pumping out products quickly. Overall product quality is low.

    Advice to Management

    I wish that management would have been more open to innovation. I think the job got really boring after a while and felt that the overall attitude was "This is the way it's always been, so let's keep doing it this way even though we know this isn't the best way to do it."
