    I worked at Qualcomm full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Depending on the team, you can get to work with some really good engineers.
    Facilities is very good.(cab services, free food and dinner if you need to stay back)

    Cons

    Pathetic and incompetent managers. They are interested only in their own image inside the company. Decisions are taken by the managers without discussion with team and the teams will have to bear the brunt of it.
    Work life balance is non-existent. You are supposed to be working always and replying to emails all the time.
    Review process is not transparent. Too much of politics.
    Too much disparity in pay and promotion between other sites.

    Advice to Management

    Please resign and get some good managers if you want qcom to recover.
