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

    Pros

    Top notch talented engineers! Pleasant work environment with an open attitude. If you want to discuss something with the VP, just drop by his office. Your opinion counts, and you can make real changes. In Boulder, there is on-site gym and cafeteria, and other amenities. The work is leading-edge wireless tech, and there is a wide variety of projects at the Boulder office.

    Cons

    Since the incredible success of smart phones, there has been an increasing pressure to just "turn the crank" to churn out minor/no modifications to software and hardware for follow-on ASICs. The organization has grown and been compartmentalized such that it can be difficult to be "a star" in the crowd (but the opportunity still exists).

    Program Analysts in RFFE are provided tremendous opportunities to prove capabilities and learn the operations process at Qualcomm.
