I have been working at Qualcomm full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Where I am at, we are working on the latest and greatest. I work around highly motivated, intelligent people who keep me young and challenged.

Cons

Sometimes you still have to deal with the politics of a big company.

Advice to Management

You will get more out of your employees if you manage down instead of up.

    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Cutting Edge Technology. Always sufficiently challenged feeling. Feels taken care of. Open door.

    Cons

    Lacks Cool factor. Innovation is limited to few Research Groups rather than entire organization. Dont compensate efforts equivalently.

    Advice to Management

    Plan better for deadlines. Plan for time-offs of your employees who are burning out. There is really no cool-off period. Customer is the King, but your Peasants form the Kingdom.

    I worked at Qualcomm as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The technology and the culture at Qualcomm is top notch. The technology the company works on is cutting edge for the industry and the company feels like it. Definitely not disappointed.

    Cons

    The intern experience seemed a little disorganized/unfinished. There is a culture of getting things done quickly and needing to keep up with people because they don't often slow down for the benefit of new employees.
