    I worked at Qualcomm

    Pros

    The company offers good benefits, and a good compensation. The people are nice and the working atmosphere is pleasant. Qualcomm likes to emphasize on balancing work life and hobbies. There are nice events organized for employees. I think it is a great place to work for when you have a family. Your working hours are also very flexible.

    Cons

    Big company, can feel lost sometimes as an intern. I worked in two different groups. I hated the first one but really liked the second one. Your experience depends a LOT on your group (and therefore your manager too). I did not learn much in my first group but learned a lot in my second group in a shorter period of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really depends... first manager did not care about me. Second manager was awesome.

    I have been working at Qualcomm

    Pros

    The benefits are very good, and reviews are 360 and regular as clockwork, with raises and bonus usually following. Non-cubicle environments for the most part. Nice facilities and amenities. Wicked smart people in core areas. Truly global in makeup and perspective. Technological leadership and market gorilla status. Relatively flat hierarchy and accessible management.

    Cons

    There's a cultural tendency towards empire building and slow responsiveness in dealing with nonperforming products and personnel. Seems stricken and hobbled sometimes by competing/conflicting business interests internally. Mediocrity seems tolerated in some areas because of the cash pouring in from licensing royalties. Over-bureaucratized an over-lawyered to a degree that is reflected in the products sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider 20% time like Google has--you have a lot of smart people who would make good use of it. Try spinning off new ventures at a pace that matches your acquisitions.
