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

    Pros

    1. Creative work environment. 2. Good leadership 3. Career growth opportunities The work environment is great and is conducive for effective team work. The management is very responsive and creates ample space for teams to show their creativity in a project.

    Cons

    1. Lack of accountability 2. Long hours (by choice) 3. Inflexible regimen The main problem is the lack of accountability for the work being done. Everybody seems to work in their own timelines. This often creates clashes between interdependent teams. The management does not intervene as it should.

    Advice to Management

    Great work being done by the management. However, it needs to increase the level of accountability among individual teams and make sure that one under performing team does not drag the project down.

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

      Pros

      Exciting technical work with little management supervision. Extremely generous Compensation, RSU's and Bonuses. ( West Coast model ).

      Cons

      Every time we went to San Diego we had to work long hours with little thanks. San Diego was the HQ site and a depressing place, constantly suffering from staff cutbacks. In the end , the pitches by senior management were not believable . Poor stock performance ... negative or directionless.

      Advice to Management

      Needed more management skills and less engineering skills. Q got a free ride on a royalty model that eventually customers pushed back on. Better to negotiate that litigate with major customers.
