    1. No quality work here in Hyderabad. not good for freshers.
    2. Recruits students from IIT's and NIT's to do Brainless job. Managers treats Engineers and Associate Engineers as a Slaves.
    3. If you once join Qualcomm then No more options it is very difficult to switch to other companies.
    4. Very Hectic you have to spend lots of time in work, that you don't like. Many are not happy with their work but no other options for them.
    5. advice to freshers not to join Qualcomm.

    I worked at Qualcomm full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This company has very good name in industry and the technology that company works on is cutting edge for the industry.

    Cons

    Work pressure is hectic, work life balance is poor. People call at night times asked to come to office if you do not they will show all reasons in review. Management is worst even to complain about any such incidents. There are many flaws in recruitment, people at same level are recruited at different level even the candidate had given 5 rounds of interview placed at lower level compared to candidate who given one telephonic. The moment employee starts questioning review gets affected and simple answer given by management is do not compare with others. You just cannot stay with this company looking at company name in industry.

    Pros

    This company is a leader in the mobile SOC and mobile communications market. There is lot to learn in here. The compensation is also on the higher side with respect to the average in the market.

    Cons

    Very stressful, maintaining work life balance is not easy. We have to work in weekends even if the project is not in the peak phase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should encourage their employees to venture into things other than work. Reducing stress considerably increases productivity.
