    I worked at Qualcomm as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice Professional Environment. Team members were friendly and Manager always supported and help whenever needed. Given Personal Office and Nice Infrastructure. Very Good Salary. Relocation expenses were provided by the Company. Nice work culture. Got Opportunities to visit San Diego for Company's Intern event twice.

    Cons

    Nothing much to say for cons. They do not provide car rentals instead of monthly rent for Temporary living. Regular work hours starts from 9-10 am for most of the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the Relocation policy flexible so that Employees & Interns have more options to choose for Relocation.

    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, including bonuses and stock, good benefits, employee friendly policies, flexible hours, recognizes successes, encourage training. Excellent tool availability, and will purchase more when needed.

    Cons

    Long hours, unrealistic schedules, projects often understaffed. Attempts to leverage existing designs where it may not be the best approach. Top heavy management, leaving little room to advance. Repetitive assignments limit opportunities for personal growth.

    Advice to Management

    Trust input from line level management regarding timelines and resources when planning and sizing projects. Allow some downtime between for people to get training. Focus more on employee growth and shuffle folks to diversify their skills, employees will be happier, more focused and efficient.
