    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time

    Pros

    Salary and especially stock benefits (but only for relatively senior positions above staff engineer level, otherwise not competitive enough for junior positions)

    Cons

    Office politics, bad managers at all levels (difficult to come across a decent manager), bad decision making, really awkward processes everywhere (project management, expense claim, travel arrangement etc)

    business increasing in India and closing down / reducing caps sites in Europe and US. Making lots of roles redundant and laying of people.

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

    Pros

    Really good work life balance, Management are really supportive, RSU and ESPP options, other benefits

    Cons

    As any other large blue chip company, your basic salary will be much lower as Brand name attracts many strong candidates, All people live in their feel good bubble created by company with 20% less salary then of their potential in market. Growing up the ladder is really difficult in the company, due to lots bureaucracy. The rating system , no of years in positions etc etc before you could jump, lots of box ticking. For IT/Engineers and Senior management this company is great but for support function staff its not the best lets stay unless you want some place for 9 to 5 without challenge and growth.
