    Pros

    Qcom bangalore .., you will get challenging work (much more than 9 hrs though), flexible work hours. Lot of learning resources. this is highly process oriented company.
    IT support and automation in this company is at its best.

    Cons

    worst work life balance.
    sometimes you need to repeat the samething for multiple projects in unrealistic time frames.
    Not a place to stay for long years, some day you will be exausted in such a high stressfull work environment.
    sometimes artificial work pressure will be created by the team leads .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about the work life balance of the employees.

    3. Chance to learn new tools and technologies.
    4. Get to work on variety of projects.
    5. Free Food.
    6. Perfect work-life balance

    Cons

    Few managers are from Service based company & they are spoiling the atmosphere of a perfect product based company.
    They try to create rules all the time and want people to follow them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slowly things are getting bad from past 6 months or so. There's frustration brewing in among employees. More people are searching for job opportunities outside, which was not the case 6 months back.
    Please look into this concern quickly. Try to interact with employees. Ask for their feedback and act upon it.
    NOTE: As i mentioned, few of the managers and not all of them are like this.
