    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Boulder, CO (US)

    I worked at Qualcomm full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Boulder does not have a high cost of living yet employees get similar salaries and perks as compared to San diego. Lots of stuff to do at Boulder.

    Cons

    Hard work and overtime hours put in not appreciated, criticism heavy.
    Employees usually leave by 5 or 6, but at times can be working late and round the clock.
    San diego is given preference, feeling of being at a branch of a major company palpable.
    Cafeteria not great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your employees more, don't judge on results, see how much effort and time they've put in.

    pressure cooker. They use you up and throw you away. They talk worklife balance but don't practice it.
