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

    Pros

    Excellent work life balance, the best health care and other benefits, good pay, good co-workers and teams

    Cons

    Uninteresting projects, too much hierarchy inhibits growth, innovation and motivation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even though the managerial structure follows a hierarchy, it would be nice if it didn't have to show in the workplace so evidently and encouraged open and flat communication.

    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time

    Pros

    Great people, cutting edge technology, plenty of innovation, your work goes into hundreds of millions of real devices, very open company culture. Salaries pretty good for UK engineering.

    Cons

    Career progression harder/slower if you are not located in (or have the opportunity to move to) San Diego. Poor work/life balance at times. Becoming increasingly 'corporate'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think hard about making the best of the people you have outside of San Diego - especially offering the same kind of career progression and opportunities.
