AV Production Tech Specialist (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – October 12, 2018
A typical day at work would be operating camera, technical switches board, lighting board or audio board. My manager would always make sure I was well equipped before having me start a job. Great work environment and a collaborative team to be a part of. Would definitely recommend this company to anyone!

Principle Engineer/Manager (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – October 9, 2018
Typical day starts in lab where we scrum every day's activity and set goals to achieve with team members. Setup sessions to learn techincal agenda. Hardest part of the day is when i need to give someone tough message if he is not deliverying to his potential. Most enjoyable part of the day is to see how much team can do together as one.
Technology company with some of the best talent in the industry in the field of telecommunications
Senior Staff Engineer/Manager - Modem System Test (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – October 8, 2018
I've grown and learnt a lot technically working at Qualcomm. The hands on experience I've gained here is very valuable. It also offers a good health plan for employees. Team events and team outings are enjoyable.
Engineer (Current Employee) – US – October 4, 2018
great compensation, and benefit, management is good but lack of advancement for me. My team is great as well, lean management. typical day is 7 hours. I did not learn much more than I came in in the past year. some managements are great, workplace culture is nice, hardest part of job is commute. I can read when no busy.
Director Engineering (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – October 1, 2018
execution is a hard part since talented young engineers are leaving. mid-level management is getting more challenged. however, in general, still good company to work since mobile tech is a leading factor
Buyer/Planner (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – October 1, 2018
Very little work/life balance. Worked extensive hours late into the night and on weekends. Expected to work through vacation days. Management was old fashioned and did not believe in working offsite and supported outmoded technology.
Great technology company, retrenching now with product focus.
Senior Director, Finance (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – October 1, 2018
Qualcomm was a great ride through the glory years as a technology innovator. It still has good prospects as a product company however the vibe has changed. Looking forward to seeing how QC prospers post-Apple settlement.
Business Continuity Specialist Associate (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – September 25, 2018
My time at Qualcomm gave me direction on field of employment. My days were filled with learning something new or applying what I had learned the previous day. Management needed greater awareness of the challenges faced by veterans entering the workforce. The company culture was laid back. A nice change of pace from the military. The hardest part of the job was not being allowed to work overtime. The most enjoyable part of my experience was having a job to put food on the table and build my confidence that I could make it in the civilian workforce. Thank You QUALCOMM!!!
Contracts Specialist / Paralegal (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – September 25, 2018
I have enjoyed working at Qualcomm. It is very stressful and I started at the beginning as a start-up company but over the years it has become like many other companies, unfortunately, you are just a number and way too many politics going on.
IT Staff Engineer (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – September 21, 2018
The crown jewel of San Diego has gotten a little tarnished during my half-tenure. 10 years ago it would have been a great place to build a career. Now ( at least if you are in IT ) I would avoid it. You will be stuck working on legacy applications that no one knows how they work. There will be a layoff every 6 months. Sorry Qualcomm, I guess I had higher expectations....
Free soda, great benefits, above-average salary
Layoffs, lots of Legacy stuff that was probably cool to work on back in Qualcomms heyday.
