    Pros

    The company has some great programs to help employees advance their own skill sets. The benefits package is nice but is not that much better than other major firms.

    Cons

    The review process is a joke. It happens twice a year and is just a way for employees to bash each other anonymously. Management would rather pit workers against each other than actually manage their employees. Expect a management re-org at least every three months. Execution of any idea there is almost non-existent. It may have been a good company at one point but it's definitely going down the tubes. For proof of that look at their stock price.

    Advice to Management

    Provide real leadership instead of stating that you understand behavioral management. Your utter lack of the ability to actually lead and make informed and rational decisions is scary at best.

    Pros

    Qualcomm is correctly seen as the leading company in wireless. I get to work with smart people. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Company is big. Not clear why some parts comtinue to do what they do. Changes have come recently to cut down on waste of resources.

    Advice to Management

    Think carefully about what the next big thing will be when the current money-making businesses slow down. Look to leverage Qualcomm's strength. Easy to say but very hard to do at the scale needed to remain the pre-eminent mobile technology company.
