Lots of growth opportunity and managers that care. And the health benefits are really great. Come on in and welcome to qualcomm!

Cons

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!

    Pros

    -Great benefits, including full health/dental
    -Tuition reimbursement (if related to your job)
    -Bonus structure
    -Stock plan
    -401k matching
    -Clear management goals, good structure to the company
    -Well-defined roles
    -Internal inovation process where you can submit new product ideas.

    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.
