    Pros

    Working on latest technologies
    Working on good quality stuff
    Good for those who are hardworking

    Cons

    No process being followed for example neither Agile nor Waterfall ..hence it very confusing what are PMs trying to achieve. PMs should write a whitepaper to define the process, and there should be frequent audits for adherence.

    Advice to Management

    please encourage Managers to complete MBA and PMP certification.

    Pros

    Qualcomm has Open door policy, which is really great. Company is full of Strong technical people with really Nice working environment. Very goal oriented engineers with great team work capability

    Cons

    I think one thing which company has some Cons is basically with work-life balance, as there are lot of late night meetings. This is something one can point as negative

    Advice to Management

    Management may think of giving some focus to work-life balance, which at time hurts people, that is one thing can be improved
