    "Better have a good college degree. Evidently 2 more years of college is way more important than 20+ years of real world"

    I worked at Qualcomm as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Qualcomm has excellent opportunities to work with leading edge technology, IF you fit their definition of a professional. If not, better look elsewhere.

    Cons

    I was hired to work a 1 year contract. My contract was cancelled after only 3 months despite excellent performance evaluations. The word contract here has nothing but negative connotations. It only means they cannot give you a REAL direct hire position for the duration of the contract. Pay was low, benefits nonexistant. Not a pleasant experience.

    Advice to Management

    You should place more importance on proven ability than on a single piece of university paper.

    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    High stress, but high reward environment. Always new, interesing projects to work on. Compensated very well. I was promoted in a short amount of time and my Director has big plans for me downt he road.

    Cons

    Hard to strike a good work/life balance if you want to keep advancing. If you slow down to only 40-45 hrs a week, you are falling behind. Twice a year review process is a waste of everyone's time. Filling out 10-15 3rd party appraisals plus my own self review twice a year makes no sense.

    Advice to Management

    Budget cuts have cut out small rewards. Don't penny pinch on the little things.
