    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Qualcomm for less than a year

    Pros

    Your opinions get valued even if you have been at the company for a short period of time. Even as an intern, you get treated as a full timer

    Cons

    Big company, low scope to move around. You are in the same team for years. No other negative points about the company

    Advice to Management

    None. Most of the managers are really good. They dont micromanage. They let the developers spear head particular projects

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work hard when there's deadlines, relax when there's not much. Time for work is usually flexible and working till late is usually at your discretion

    Cons

    Feels a lot of times that the work you do goes unappreciated. And feels hard to be proud of the work you do.

    Advice to Management

    Need to give better attention to junior engineers, their needs and accomplishments. How would they feel motivated to work when the work they do is always overlooked.

    I worked at Qualcomm full-time

    Pros

    The salary is very good. In fact staff are overpaid compared with other similar companies in the same region.

    Cons

    The actual work is not very exciting, as the office is a small remote office compared with the headquarter.

    Advice to Management

    concentrate the resources available to focus on a few projects, not just give all the resources to the tech leads in San Diego.
