    I worked at Qualcomm full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, good work life balance

    Cons

    Work is boring. Nothing to learn after 6 month. No respect to engineers. People get into groups and attack each other. People get promoted based on who they know. Smart engineers are leaving. Meaningless meetings. There are managers doing all the design themselves and tell engineers get the things done and ask no question. Then they can use that pathetic information to exchange with other managers in those endless meetings and and gain "visibility" and quick promotions. Benefits and work life balance is good and you think above is not a problem. But it's the problem.

    Happy employees produce the best quality work.

    Pros

    Good benefits, fun events, on the leading edge of wireless technology.

    Cons

    Unless you're an engineer or management and directly contributing to the bottom line, you are not as valued. Benefits and perks used to be much better. Company culture has diminished as the head count has increased.
