    Pros

    Forward looking management. Wide range of opportunities. They are pretty flexible on letting you change departments if the opportunities permit it.

    Qualcomm takes great care of your work-life balance.

    Cons

    Pure tech focus. Could do with some sort of a rotation program on the likes of what Intel has. Without it, the opportunities are very limited for people with interests at the intersection of tech and business.

    Advice to Management

    Establish a rotation program for engineering hires who can get in on the business side and help Qualcomm really diversify beyond just being a patent churning machine.

    Pros

    It is exciting to work for a company that is so successful at what it does. Everyone is extremely smart and there is opportunity for personal and career growth. Also, you can't beat a location like San Diego. It's one of the best places in the world to live and work in.

    Cons

    Same as the downsides for working for any large company. It is sometimes hard to get a good idea of what your work will go to help out the strategic goals of the organization. In a smaller company a single person's work is directly impacting to the success of the company.

    Advice to Management

    They could implement more efficient and frequent communication with the employees and have a way of transmitting ideas up to them.

    I have been working at Qualcomm as an intern

    Pros

    Qualcomm has a Great atmosphere, great people, and alot of opportunities to learn, as they provide training for whatever you need. Great food. Given alot of responsibility as intern.

    Cons

    There isn't a lot of interaction with other departments/sections of the company. There isn't alot of opportunities to interact with other interns and the social aspect a bit lacking.

    Advice to Management

    I would advice managers to try and better people's work life balance, as many work over time than they actually get paid.
