Pros

Amazing technology - the products are state of the art, the environment is very fast paced and it can be a very exicting place to work. Its also very rewarding to see someone using a device you helped launch. Schedules are generally flexible, and the company provides swimming pools, full gym access to anyone who wants to use it, tennis courts, basketball courts, ping pong tables, free sodas, and if the admin in your area is cool, you can have munchies galore.

Cons

The atmosphere is very difficult and negative. There is no accountability, and it feels as if everyone is at war. In addition to the hositile environment, there are many mid-level managers that treat others like dogs. Nervous, negative yuckness is what it feels like as soon as you walk into the building (Q) , Whats worse is, your made to feel as if your contribution to the company means nothing; yyou are a dime a dozen. The mostly all male - mid-level managers have risen above, not because of talent or super abilities, because everyone who works there is in their own rite a "super star", and a "talented individual", it is because they are ruthless. Purely mean and terrible people.

Advice to Management

Dear QCT leaders, there are so many great things the comapny does for the employees, but all of it means nothing when the atmosphere is so aweful. Here is my suggestion: Leaders we need you to lead, we will follow your steps all the way if you take a path... any path. Accountability and forgiveness is inspiring.

    Pros

    Qualcomm is a fortune 500 company where most people are very professional, and usually talented. The company is always interested in pushing the limits of wireless and has a strong background in research

    Cons

    Most of the people in upper management have been with Qualcomm from over 20 years ago. The churn is not too high as a result there isnt a lot of new ideas and fresh blood coming in at that level.

    Advice to Management

    Every company needs new talents at every level allowing fresh ideas and perspectives flowing in. Qualcomm needs to promote that.
