    Pros

    Great benefits, lots of resources for learning, friendly coworkers, flexible schedule. Your work impacts a lot of people.

    Cons

    The workload is usually higher than what you can get done in 40 hours/week. There is some incompetence in some of the teams we work with, and corporatism does slow things down. Compensation is throttled by an open agreement between several large companies, including this one. Engineering is discouraged from pursuing management path.


  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.
