    I worked at Qualcomm full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Talented staff, great learning programs and resources, top compensation levels, opportunity to impact billions of lives through the technology

    Cons

    Top heavy with too many 1) males, 2) engineers, 3) senior titles. Currently undergoing a cull to protect net income figures. Too centralised in San Diego - all other sites/employees are low on priority. Too much politics originating from senior VP's being there since the beginning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in employees with more diverse backgrounds than engineering/finance/law, otherwise you risk losing your creative/innovative dna. Time to grow up from being a family firm to being a truly global company.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed 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
