    I worked at Qualcomm full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to learn for a beginner. Flexible working hours and great perks for performance that too semi-annual. Employees can move across teams with moderate difficulty.

    Cons

    One should be adaptable to high moving schedules. Lot of internal high level politics, but doesn't much matter to low level employees. Few low knowledgeable managers may make you fee irritated sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More opportunity should be given to employees to allow internal knowledge to flow across teams through proper sessions.

    Pros

    Good pay . Good reward for hard work through promotion or Bonuses etc . Open door policy and Work from Home option.

    Cons

    No work life balance . More managers than Technical People . In some groups work is more like copy paste job simply execution .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People with Technical knowledge who are not so good in management should be treated on par with people who are good in managing people but less technical knowledge .People who are good at managing getting preference in promotion over technically good people . There should be Technical growth ladder for people good in technology .

    I worked at Qualcomm as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nice perks as an intern and good compensation

    Cons

    The work you do depends on the team you end up in. Work ranges from building a new product to running a few test cases (depending on which team you are in and what the team lead believes an intern must do).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None that i can think of. My managers were awesome.
