Summer Intern
Summer Intern, (Former Employee), San Diego, CAFebruary 12, 2014
Pros: discount lunches, many team building events, great envoirnment to work and learn in
I was an Intern for a summer at Qualcomm so I do not have enough expirence to provide valuable feedback. However, during my time there I was given many projects where I was the project lead and the culture was a very fun and enjoyable to be a part of. I was part of the IT Finance team that implemented a new Oracle ERP system which was a great expirence – more... and something that helps me everyday in my current role.

Management was very hepful and truly cared about the growth and expirence during my time as an Intern. I would highly recommend working at Qualcomm. – less

Corporate Salt Mine
Intern - Network Operations Center (Former Employee), San Diego, CAJanuary 8, 2014
Pros: free soda.
Cons: people were generally disgruntled.
Assigned a mentor who promptly went on vacation for three months. Had to create my own work and then was told not to. Role was mostly sitting there and doing nothing. Other workers seemed to have that strategy well implemented. Very much a good ol' boy's club.

Your experience depends on where you land
Product Manager (Former Employee), San Diego, CAJanuary 8, 2014
Pros: compensation, stock options, vacation, good teamwork at the working level.
Cons: poorly qualified management in terms of leadership capability, senior management disconnected from whe working level.
At the working level, the teamwork is fantastic. Given the pressures of the senior and executive management, the teams operated professionally and with purpose. If I would say what has gotten Qualcomm to where it is today, I would say the working teams that focus on success which has made the difference. I can't say enough about the level of commitment – more... that the execution teams make to achieve success. All this while keeping an environment of respect and professionalism.

Senior and executive culture can be characterized as highly political likely due to the vast number of Senior Directors and VPs at the company. My direct senior management were not qualified leaders but achieved their positions as a result of playing the political power game well and being connected and in favor of the executive management. So in contrast the the excellent cross-functional teamwork done at the working level, there existed no teamwork at the functional department level. – less

Sr. Program Analyst (Former Employee), San Diego, CADecember 12, 2013
Pros: good benefits
Cons: workloads are very heavy with tight deadlines
Qualcomm is a challenging and demanding place to work but if you can manage the workload, stress and deadlines, your job is almost secure. Salary is at the lower end of average but the benefits help compensate for this and exceed other corporations.
