    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time


    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.


    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.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Qualcomm.

    Interview Details

    two onsite interviews plus three phone interviews, a little repetitive but it was good to get access to lots of different people to ask them questions. Had to speak with people in the US so those interviews were in the evening but that was fine. covered my general background, industry knowledge, most difficult hires, dealing with line managers,strengths, weaknesses

That’s how often people around the world touch something made better by Qualcomm. It could be the smartphone in your pocket, the tablet on your coffee table, that wireless modem in your briefcase… it could even be that navigation system in your car or that action camera strapped to your chest.
