I have been working at Qualcomm full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great technology and generous company.

Cons

San Diego housing stock is relatively poor. If you don't need 3500 sq feet with 5+ bedrooms but want to live in a nice area without wasting your money on an HOA or Mello Roos, its pretty slim pickings.

    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"
