    I have been working at Qualcomm

    Pros

    Great benefits, good career progression, good work-life balance, interesting tasks and technologies to work on. Opportunity to work remotely or off-site around the world. Teams are often well resourced.

    Cons

    Much like anywhere in the technology sector, there can be times where there are tight deadlines and stressful situations. There are also quite a few divisions going through some tough times and downsizing at the moment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on providing a good working environment and the appropriate resources for teams. Try to avoid too many meetings or too much organisational hierarchy.

    I worked at Qualcomm full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very innovative. Flexible work environment. Employee effort is often recognised

    Cons

    In a small and young team, not much mentoring is happening.

    Advice to Management

    Structured the team appropriately so young engineers get the benefit of being mentored by the skilled and experienced engineers.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The benefits are excellent, and the salary compares well with the industry. There is a strong sense of teamwork within most groups.

    Cons

    The expectations are high, and there is a lot of pressure to perform. There have been a lot of ups and downs recently, but that seems to be in the past now.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to focus on its strengths, rather than trying to hit every possible product niche. Spreading effort too thin ends up backfiring.
