    I worked at Qualcomm full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, rules etc. Industry best Pay (atleast in India). Pay hikes are relatively good.

    Cons

    Hectice Work when Project approaches deadline and these scenarios are quite frequent once you cross your training period.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Team Culture can be improved a lot in centres other than headquarters i.e. Hyderabad, Bangalore etc. Specially the way freshers are brought on board can be made a lot more better. Currently a very traditional and passive way of video lectures and traning material is followed.

    Good vision, Awesome perqs and strong policies
