    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Qualcomm full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fortune-100 environment with lots of skill expansion opportunities

    Cons

    Too many legal battles around the world took its toll on Q's values. Even the best are dispensable due to the allure of off-shoring in the face of financial crunch to pay legal bills.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management

    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Career growth, technical skills, get to choose

    Cons

    Too much politics, work from home policy depends on your manager and some managers never approve.

    Advice to Management

    Get proper employee feedback. Without having the manager involved. And action plan post feedback should also not include the manager.

    I worked at Qualcomm full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Work is good, Lot to learn, people are dedicated and hardworking - you get a lot of material to help you - Tuition reimburse - Lot of training to choose from - ESPP program and bonus at year end

    Cons

    - Politics Politics Politics !! - Toxic work culture [not generic][specific to the org I was working ] - Totally Biased towards certain groups/factions - Most of the times, work is randomly assigned and deadlines are given to unnecessarily pressurize you, while it is clearly not relevant .. There will be pressure almost every week, but at the end of the year .. you will ask yourself why the hell, what did I... achieve ? - No transparency , Low morale - work life balance is not encouraged - No-one cares, you feel merely a number - Low Base pay, but probably something is being addressed ,

    Advice to Management

    None !! A lot of Climate surveys were given .. Nothing changes so best is to move on
