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

Pros

- Slow growth

Advice to Management

- Be faster, be more nimble
- Cut down middle management. They seem to be only concerned about looking good in front of their managers.

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

    Pros

    Great work environment; incredible benefits; very flexible for hours, incredible infrastructure. Company is so big now that difficult to move it quickly. Premier employer in the San Diego region.

    Cons

    Can be political at times - not necessarily time spent on projects or presenting deliverables equates to proper compensation. More transparency would be helpful.

    Advice to Management

    Know if your middle managers are doing a good job.
