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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Great people and great job location. The work space is great. Everyone has an office so if you like to have your private time at work .. them its great. I personally hate cubicles so the office idea was great.

    Cons

    promotion is very slow. The diversity within the company is that great. Too much of indians which isnt a bad thing but I personally prefer an environment that is more diverse. People tend to work long hours.

    Advice to Management

    The company should strive for more diversity within the company. I like to see more people from a minority back ground in leadership positions
