    I worked at Qualcomm full-time

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Very intelligent, very motivated, great team players. Good pay. Great technology to work on.

    Cons

    Executive managers can be bullies, lots of politics, sometimes a little slippery for my taste. Weird because the Mollekopf does not appear that way but some of the VPs he has surrounded himself with leave much to be desired. Work like a dog. Zero work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up your act and lead by example.
