    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    1. Benefits like free meals 3 times (giving 2 rating just because of it :P). 2. Company stocks program. 3. Most of the time work life balance is there.

    Cons

    1. Too much politics (south vs north) and (senior vs junior). 2. Working with old people is quite difficult, They don't encourage to think new or do something out of box. 3. Pay is well below market standard. 4. Managers are worst here, don't care about work ethics (can shout at anyone in work hours). 5. The process of norms is too much lengthy. So, work efficiency gets affected. 6. No clear division of work among engineers. 7. Scope of learning is very less and learning rate will become 0 after 1 year(same repetitive work again and again). 8. I worked in a team which was full of seniors people only and when i joined i was fresher so, they don't used to consider us as a significant resource.
