    I worked at Qualcomm full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Qualcomm - QCT - is full of surprises. It is a great place to work, and there are many things that are good for the employee: great employee relations, HR helps ensure manager apply consistent rules, and the benefits are good. You get a review every 6 months and get formal feedback each time.

    Cons

    Here are the surprises: the management mindset is very much to reward the fire fighters, not the good managers who prevent the fires in the first place. There is great focus on execution and the delivery of quality product. However there is less attention to addressing inefficiencies. QCT runs many projects in parallel and does a good job as this. If I compare lower profile less interesting but high volume projects with the high profile, more interesting lower volume projects - the latter always get into trouble (because they are complex) and so get all the attention, and these team members seem to be better rewarded than the low profile teams who do a good job (and so don't need management attention).

    Advice to Management

    Reward the good managers, not just the heros.
