    I worked at Qualcomm

    Pros

    The atmosphere of the place, being in San Diego, was laid-back but people worked hard at the same time.

    Cons

    Not too many cons. Not as many perks as other tech companies in the Valley? (No free food, etc.)

    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent people to work with. No mid layer management crap. All people at senior levels have risen through the ranks.
    Excellent benefits for entire family. Perhaps the best in US!!

    Cons

    Employers in Bay Area pay atleast 10% more than what Qualcomm offers in San Diego. It is high time salary correction is made for San Diego employees since the cost of living at San Diego is similar to that of Bay Area.

    On a few days, work can get crazy and I end up staying long hours to finish it up...This perhaps is part of Qualcomm culture to give what it takes to keep customers happy!!

    Also, it is common to work during weekends, if you are in town

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to increase salary of the good top engineering talent to retain them, else there is too much money available at Bay Area, which will make good people quit Qualcomm

    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I am working on cutting edge technologies and innovative projects. I got a bit of training from the company. I have a few perks such as health insurance. Colleagues are generally helpful and nice. I get to go to the gym at lunch time and Qualcomm pays half of it.

    Cons

    The office looks ugly and boring. The town of Farnborough is not a good place to live. It feels like the people working for Qualcomm in San Diego receive a much better treatment.
