    Pros

    They really take care of their employees and that's shown extra bright during the pandemic. They are thoughtful of many situations you could be in and help work through every one. Work life balance is pretty good

    Cons

    Office culture can vary from location to location, dept to dept. Some are really ambitious and aggressive when it comes to trying to get promoted and some are more laid back. You will need to find the one that fits your style.

    Former Employee

    The team was not a great team. Too much politics and organization is very heavy.

    Pros

    San diego is a good place to live. Qualcomm is big tech employer.

    Cons

    Very heavy organization. More managers than the actual engineers to do job. The higher managers lacked knowledge and did not want to learn new things. Salary gap between male and female. This is the only place I have worked where engineers hesitate to share information with the team. May be due to individual office space culture.

    Qualcomm is an exciting cutting-edge tech company to work for!

    Pros

    I've had a great experience working at Qualcomm for over six years. It's exciting to work on technology used in almost every smartphone across the globe. There is always plenty of work to do, but in my experience I've always had the right amount of work and responsibility - not too much but not too little. The work-life balance is great for software developers.

    Cons

    There is a lot to learn about wireless technology and modem software if you are joining with no experience in either. The learning curve is steep and for me it took years before I felt like I was actually becoming a solid individual contributor.
