Pros

Lots of growth opportunity and managers that care. And the health benefits are really great. Come on in and welcome to qualcomm!

Cons

Salary tends to be only average for the field positions but the health benefits are good. May have to put in weekends during hard times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is a bit of separation between the leadership and project managers. Work more on communication between the two. Otherwise that's it!

    Pros

    -Great benefits, including full health/dental
    -Tuition reimbursement (if related to your job)
    -Bonus structure
    -Stock plan
    -401k matching
    -Clear management goals, good structure to the company
    -Well-defined roles
    -Internal inovation process where you can submit new product ideas.

    Cons

    -The roles can be too narrow if you are a jack-of-all-trades
    -Stock upside isn't what it used to be
    -Hard to advance up the ladder quickly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help employees get more training by supporting more education opportunities in nearby colleges or even onsite. I saw many friends leave that were talented but couldn't find a role within the company because the roles tend to be narrowly focused. Also, don't rely on the massive revenue from royalties, seek to take more risks in bringing new products/ideas to market even if some don't succeed. Place even more emphasis on internal innovation and allow employees to devote a portion of their day-hours to this effort.

    I have been working at Qualcomm

    Pros

    Qualcomm is working on some cutting-edge , fast-to-market wireless technologies, which allows all its employees, irrespective of the job title, to be part of contributing to the rapidly changing mobile industry.

    Cons

    I feel the downside of working at Qualcomm headquarters is the probably the long work hours and aggressive project delivery schedules

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    from my perspective, the leadership at Qualcomm is doing a great job. Having been in the industry for a year, I do not have any advice to the management just yet :)
