agressive work environment
Software Engineer (Current Employee), San DiegoJanuary 23, 2014
Pros: plenty of opportunities, best place for quick growth
Cons: work burden is more, busy environment.
The company has huge number of projects. A normal day will be pretty busy fixing bugs, implementing and delivering new features with very close deadlines. There is plenty of room to learn new stuff if you are self motivated.

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

Serious work place but offers many benefits.
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.

Staff Marketing Manager (Current Employee), San Diego, CADecember 4, 2013
Great work culture. Some of the policies are bit weird.
career development is in your own hands as managers dont really watch out for your career growth. Yearly performance review is also a bit of mystery

A generally good company with unique positioning
Director, Strategic Marketing, QCA strategy (Current Employee), San Jose, CANovember 26, 2013
Qualcomm is generally good in terms of working environment and culture. Uniquely positioned, Qualcomm is able to sustain a steady growth with its vision in cellular technology. However, Qualcomm is not a typical semiconductor company in such a way that its market expension is horizontal. So other than working directly at cellular technologies, you don't – more... feel your creativity is supported and job security is strong. – less
