I have been working at Qualcomm full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Good incentives. And the review cycle is once 6 months. Also San Diego being a little cheaper place, it's an awesome company to work for.

Cons

Too many meetings at Qualcomm. Almost nothing happens in most of the meetings but you are supposed to attend them. Once you learn how to manage your time it gets easier. ALso the workload is too much especially when a new modem comes up.

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

    Pros

    They do provide great benefits

    Cons

    When you have a medical condition that requires consistent accommodations expect it to be challenged. They will fight you until they are able to terminate you.

    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time

    Pros

    Good Pay, Lot of time given to learn new technologies and new things. Lot of training involved. Good to start career

    Cons

    Low growth rate, work responsibilities vaguely defined by senior management, politics, favoritism,no respect to people starting their career. - work environment smells less motivating , same mistakes done by senior member overlooked, but young people bashed for it, shud be reverse.

    Advice to Management

    More people than needed, feedback system jacked up, listen to everyone.
