I have been working at Qualcomm full-time

Pros

Love working here! Leadership team is strong and very forward thinking. The environment is constantly changing due to the rapid of technology evolving. Pay is good, flexible work schedule, great health benefits.

Cons

Not easy to get promoted here. With the majority of the company being engineers, management has not fully bought into how marketing can help the business grow. The technology vision is clear but how Qualcomm wants to position itself as a brand is not.

Advice to Management

Don't wait until its too late to invest in your brand. You own the smartphone space and if you don't do anything to promote your brand, you'll lose your position as the industry leader when Intel comes barreling through and markets the heck out of their processors in smartphones.

    flexible work hours , cutting edge technology . Good stock options
    Qualcomm provides great development opportunities, people recognize hard work, salaries are good, One thing I like most is that team members are friendly and really helpful. They do not treat you as a competition while sharing knowledge.
