    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Open culture, no micromanagement, good benefits

    Cons

    Does not pay well, changing jobs within Qualcomm difficult, you can get stuck in San Diego with no other alternatives

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of half of the top management who have done their time, made money with stocks and have no motivation to move forward

    Good place to work if you don't mind recycling other people's work

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, flexible work environment. Immediate supervisor was terrific.

    Cons

    Middle management incompetent and flat out has no business being managers. One nearly caused me to burn out from overworking the team (EVERYTHING was an emergency because he wanted it done fast so he could look good).

    Work consisted mostly of recycling code from other groups within Qualcomm - mostly in San Diego. No way to innovate! San Diego acts like their excrement smells sweeter than everybody else's and does not provide support or adequate documentation for their stuff.

    No appreciation for past work by some senior engineering staff (not even a "thank you" when I left). I was never thanked by one manager even though he got a promotion thanks to my efforts and those of my colleagues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire two mid-level hardware engineering managers who happen to have the same first name. None of the engineering staff likes them - only upper managers. You know who I mean.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
