    Pros

    Good reward, training, and advancement opportunities for the most part. Pretty amazing wireless technology developed via IPR and silicon for cellular, computing, and consumer devices.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, Qualcomm is undergoing major RIF due to competition, over hiring, and poor cost control. A painful time and the good folks going out the door with underachievers. Perhaps now over-focusing on profit margins, the silicon roadmap under some pressure from top and bottom competitors. This has lead to fearful atmosphere, politically charged, as everyone puts their shields up.

    Advice to Management

    Understandably new management (after Paul Jacobs left the CEO spot) is doing the necessary pruning but please get the 5-10 year field glasses out and don't overdo the layoffs.

    Pros

    great benefits( free insurance for the entire family. free dental, almost free vision care plan, good employee stock rewards. ) working with many smart people. many good projects. a sense of pride working in this company

    Cons

    pay is not competitive comparing to the peer companies. Promotions are rather limited. It really depends on who your direct managers are. recent management change and culture change.

    Pros

    Good learning experience and great compensation. Exposure to various tools and great AE support to enhance learning.

    Cons

    Less motivation for innovative and new ideas implementation. This should be ok once hiring stabilises. Once has to be careful about work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Promote innovative ideas and work to balance work-life. Implement induction program before any project kicks-off and create an atmosphere where an employee can take pride in the quality of work they do.
