Not a fun place to work
Campus Team Staffing Specialist (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCJanuary 30, 2017
I would not recommend this place; a true boys club; limited room for advancement.

The management is in their own little bubble and they do not listen to those who are actually doing the work

Fast paced engineering
Senior Engineer (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CADecember 31, 2016
Q is a great place to learn fast paced engineering. They have great team and the company is lead by proactive executives. The compensation could be better comparing to other tech companies, but still not too bad.

Great place to work
Contract Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CADecember 24, 2016
Qualcomm runs a hard-driving workplace. The contract required me to load the daily release of Android to a phone (and/or tablet, sometimes) and smoketest the build to catch any glaring flaws in the build, before passing it on to QC.

I went to that contract as a linux developer, knowing there would be little, if any, actual development. I really enjoyed the exposure to Android (at its heart, a unix/linux system).

Various levels of management were always available to help if an issue came up that stumped me.
Pros
health club access available
