MANAGER NEW PRODUCT SUPPORT ENGINEERING (Former Employee), San Diego, CAOctober 16, 2014
Pros: always a good technical challenge!
Cons: it was a common occurrence to have a very tight time constraint
There really was not a typical work day, one day I might be setting up a network or testing for production yields.
I traveled extensively to Asia and South America.
I setup networks to communicate through a secure VPN on both continents.
I also setup a packout facility in Memphis TN.all yield information transferred to the Database In San Diego via a private network.
I was responsible for the design and development of a provisioning station that allowed a single PC to upgrade software on 8 devices simultaneously and communicate via the network, these stations are still being used in production of current products

Pros: free coffee, and gym.

work is hard but you'll learn a lot with new mobile technologies and products to work with before the end consumer start owning them.

Co-workers are very professional but some managers does not have time to coach and work closely with their peers.

Qualcomm was a great place to work.
Calibration Technician (Current Employee), San Diego, CASeptember 29, 2014
Qualcomm was a great place to work. I worked closely with 7 other technicians, 3 software developers, 1 lead, 1 manager, 3 Logistics handlers, 2 Administers, and approximately 12 planners...
I worked on the night shift with 3 other technicians. I was working in a temporary position through Manpower, my contract expired and Qualcomm currently has a hiring freeze so they could not roll me into a permanent position yet... If I wait 3 months I can roll back into Qualcomm under manpower again, but I am looking for a more permanent position.

Senior Financial Analyst / Supervisor (Former Employee), San Diego, CaSeptember 8, 2014
Pros: great team / chemistry
Cons: sometimes long hours due to time zones of international business
Developed many amazing professional relationships and many friendships. It was an intense environment with high expectations, but also very rewarding.

The groups/individuals accomplishments were very visible which gave a lot of pride and moral to the team.

I enjoyed interacting with many members of the internal finance team and also with members of our sales, customer service, other finance teams, operations, shipping. Also enjoyed working with the external customers and 3rd parties on many occasions.

Great place to work
Release Engineer (Former Employee), San Diego, CAAugust 30, 2014
Pros: a simply great place to work
Cons: they depend too much on contractors and pay far below market.
You choose your own hours (within reason)

They have activities on the grass every Friday. Things like concerts, food bazaars and technology demonstration shows.

The cafeteria has great food.

They have a library and gym.

It's a comfortable atmosphere, and everyone is friendly.

The management knows their stuff and are always helpful when in a pinch.

Engineer (Current Employee), San Diego, CAAugust 20, 2014
Great co-workers and team-spirit, but poor work/life balance. Never get to leave 7pm and you would still have some work left.
Need to change their temporary workforce policies.

Program Manager, QCT Hardware Engineering (Current Employee), San Diego, CAJuly 15, 2014
Pros: high tech, no shortage of tools and management support to get the job done
Cons: can't say enough great things about this company
Qualcomm is a great place to work; quality work environment, excellent high tech tools, lots of room for growth and opportunity for a person with initiative and great attitude. I feel empowered to do my job with autonomy; I appreciate the confidence in me. A typical day includes opportunities to communicate with team members, key stakeholders, challenging computer work, interesting and fun projects, interface with intelligent and professional colleagues, problem solving. The hardest part is that Qualcomm is so large it takes time to get fully onboarded into the culture and getting to know your way around. The most enjoyable is the quality and high tech environment provides so much opportunity to learn and grow.
