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

    Pros

    Employees are very bright, first-rate, and have can-do attitudes. The culture of the company is excellent - employees at all levels are encouraged to exercise judgment, make decisions, provide opinions, share information across departments, and also to continue to develop their own skills in many areas. Primary employee benefits such as medical, dental, vision coverage, and compensation are first-rate, plus there are the additional benefits of stock options, bonuses, and many other extras. In general, this is a company that understands that their employees are their greatest asset. Many of the folks in management have good management skills. As hard as people work at Qualcomm, most people really like working there because of the dynamic and challenging environment and the sense of accomplishment and teamwork. There are very good training opportunities within the company. It would be difficult for anyone to not learn a great deal of useful knowledge and skills while working there.

    Cons

    Employees work long hours, typical of most high tech companies. Evenings, weekends, and holidays are not sacred either. At any level of the company you can be expected to be called when you are needed. This is not exactly a con but more the reality of being at a successful high tech company. It is, however, very busy and very stressful, and if you don't thrive in that kind of atmosphere then it is not the place for you. There is increasingly a more political atmosphere, which is really a shame. It was probably inevitable with the growth of the company over time, but it has greatly lessened the enjoyment of the workplace overall and added to the stress level. I feel that as the company has gotten so much larger, there is not enough understanding at the executive levels of the day-to-day trials at the working level and middle management level. This has also added to the frustration of people who put so much of themselves into their work.

    Advice to Management

    Try to understand the political situation better -- it really is getting in the way of good work and good decision-making. Make sure that executive management within the business units is really working for the best outcome of the company and not for their own egos or their turf.
