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."
