    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.


  2. "Strong company with limited opportunities for growth."
