    I have been working at Qualcomm

    Pros

    Training and Learning opportunities are good.
    People recognize your work, from Directors to immediate peer mentor. They allow you to get involved.

    Cons

    The salary is BAD compared to counterparts.
    Growth wise it is not as good, as there are much more positions as compared to US office. So you have a longer ladder to climb now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update the salary structure.
    Use uniform positions across offices

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

    Pros

    Very good environments, perks and pay for Interns. Work Life balance is good, you need to work for 5 days a week only.

    Cons

    Projects were good. However, you may not be lucky enough to grab a project of your interest. Training material was fine.
