I have been working at Qualcomm full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Challenging work, very professional staff, great benefits, industry leader, room to grow.

Cons

If working in the largest division, QCT - (Qualcomm CDMA Technologies) - it's a SWEATSHOP, SWEATSHOP, SWEATSHOP... expect 60+ hour weeks routine unless you are very good at pushing back. That is why they are industry leader - they extract more output per employee than similar companies at the expense of the employee.

Advice to Management

What's the point - they won't listen. It's a public shareholder driven company. No one cares about work-life balance. To solve that will require hiring more people which means a potential cut in profits. It's a machine. People only fool themselves when they think "a corporation cares about me"
