    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of exciting stuff happening across sites. Visibility into other domains. Decent work - life balance.

    Cons

    Lots of redundant levels of management. Hikes aren't that great. You need to sell your work just as hard as you work otherwise it'll go unnoticed.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the crap. Take everybody seriously.

    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    *Salary *People *Stock *Benefits (though it has been cut down. hope it is temporary) *perks *free food *cab *Work life balance (though team dependent). Decent scope to learn technical stuffs. Always engaged which is good, you will never feel you are wasting time. Overall good place to work with.

    Cons

    Though pay is decent, it still needs to be revised already considering the net revenue and the pay of the competitors -easily 2 to 3 years behind. Bonus also can be increased.

    Advice to Management

    Please revise the pay package and hike percentage.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Qualcomm full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good salary, with time as employee grows lot of stock options are also provided Some departments are really good for core research. You can actually file patents Great company to be in semiconductor electronics Rotation policy of allowing to work across multiple teams

    Cons

    Too large a company, Some departments can get really monotonous. strict deadlines(may be due to severe competition in semiconductor industry), always some work in pipelines

    Advice to Management

    Workers need to be more involved/informed of the impact their work can have on the real world. This should be done individually at department level regulary

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

    Pros

    Great place to learn for a beginner. Flexible working hours and great perks for performance that too semi-annual. Employees can move across teams with moderate difficulty.

    Cons

    One should be adaptable to high moving schedules. Lot of internal high level politics, but doesn't much matter to low level employees. Few low knowledgeable managers may make you fee irritated sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    More opportunity should be given to employees to allow internal knowledge to flow across teams through proper sessions.

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

    Pros

    Great place to work Good perks+salary+training+projects

    Cons

    No work life balance and the management will expect you to be active all the time including night hours. Personal growth is sometime halted due to politics involved inside the teams. No proper communication between engineers and senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Consider the life/time/health of employees before deciding on number of projects and time to complete the projects.
