    I worked at Qualcomm full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great campus, great food. Challenging environment.

    Cons

    Qualcomm is a VERY large company and I can only speak for I.T. As with most large companies they tend to get management heavy. Management has to justify their position and in turn spend endless hours thinking of ways to tighten the noose. Things were much more creative and relaxed several years ago, now it is like kindergarten, constant reports, time cards, metrics and such. Raises have all but ceased and the great stock options are now a few RSU's.

    Advice to Management

    Let the great people that Qualcomm works so hard to recruit do their jobs. Stop with the constant babysitting mentality.


  2. "Great culture but expect to work on weekends, regularly."

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

    Pros

    Lots of perks, great culture, interesting projects.

    Cons

    Long workings hours plus work on weekends. Regularly.

    Advice to Management

    Need to sort out the temp employee issue. Temporary employees have to take a 2 month break after a certain period of time, and the full-times are overburdened with work during those 2 months. Either hire the temps or do give them a break in service.
