    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits, people go out of their way to assist you if you need help. Always working on the latest and greatest.

    Cons

    Pay isn't the best, was formerly CSR and is still in transition from CSR to Qualcomm, so some Admin things might take a while and slow work down. Very very demanding and tight schedules.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people, feels quite understaffed at the moment.
