    I worked at Qualcomm full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Culture is friendly, giving, welcoming... employee development and learning opportunities are plentiful. Pay is mostly competitive. Many pluses and would absolutely recommend as a great place to work.

    Cons

    Mid-upper management politics among certain groups cause discontent among staff - and executives continue to not take action to address it. Life balance is at times hard to create due to heavy workloads.

    Advice to Management

    Take action to enable teams to work together effectively - open lines of communication and partnership among the organization. Go back to the "we are one company" motto and provide support to those working to move the company forward and not just one product or technology.
