    I have been working at Qualcomm


    Your designs are on billions of devices, great technology and engineering concepts applied on day by day basis, opportunity to enhance your curriculum, bonuses and stock options, you can work on challenging projects and schedules and meet some very smart guys (usually from the San Diego HQ)


    Poor work life balance, internal career progression and salary increments are limited, lot of pressure to be handled on daily basis, in most cases middle and senior management end up just keeping status of projects instead of doing any actual work, too hectic environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve employee recognition otherwise after a couple of years you will lose your best employees

    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.
