    Good colleagues; poor managers, and very slow career growth

    I have been working at Qualcomm

    Pros

    Great Benefits and very bright people. If you are lucky and working on a reasonable project, it can be fun.

    Cons

    Upper management believes in its own technical skills too much. They won't branch out and won't understand new things. They understand at one level that the licensing business won't last forever, but don't actual support the people they hire who understand other businesses and technologies. The growth opportunities are also very, very limited. It's a "time in grade" approach to promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You've hired bright people; believe them. Treating folks out of top universities with many years internal experience as if they were interchangeable cogs is both rude and foolish.

    I worked at Qualcomm

    Pros

    The company offers good benefits, and a good compensation. The people are nice and the working atmosphere is pleasant. Qualcomm likes to emphasize on balancing work life and hobbies. There are nice events organized for employees. I think it is a great place to work for when you have a family. Your working hours are also very flexible.

    Cons

    Big company, can feel lost sometimes as an intern. I worked in two different groups. I hated the first one but really liked the second one. Your experience depends a LOT on your group (and therefore your manager too). I did not learn much in my first group but learned a lot in my second group in a shorter period of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really depends... first manager did not care about me. Second manager was awesome.
