Great work environment. Manager was always willing to help and give encouragement whenever either me or other coworkers needed it. Workplace was very relaxed, but everyone got their work done.

Keeps laying off people

The company is in a death spiral, and keeps laying off people. The management is running out of ideas and just uses bad ideas. The CEO is promising so much in the earning but never delivered.

Working here for a really long time

It's not like the place it used to be where you felt very proud to work here. Many colleagues left for better pay and opportunities. Insurance is great and open door policy allows it to be collaborative.

An extremely steep uphill battle that is not worh the effort.

What is the best part of working at the company?A big company that operates with a very old mindset--managers get large bonuses and promotions while those under them get no recognition (verbally or financially). Recommendation: get in at the highest level you can possibly argue for because you will remain stagnant there for a very, very, very long time...What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Managers lacking integrity to the point where they claim full credit for work in which they had absolutey no involvement.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?More time, money and effort spent on the current woke social culture than on employee or product development.What is a typical day like for you at the company?Set goals for myself to complete the tasks to which I've been assigned and/or committed myself to despite getting no credit or recognition for major innovations that have drastically improved efficiency, error reduction and throughput for multiple teams.

Fairly dysfunctional leader, ship based on hiring people that are not better than you to ensure that you don’t look bad. Technology is really fun though.

Decent place to work

Company outlook isn’t looking too bright. WLB is decent, has a lot of politics. Good place to learn. Surrounded by smart people. Pay is around average

excellent place to work. life balance is adequate . Great career growth potential . I would recommend Qualcomm to anyone. Not so easy to move from dept to dept though

Okay place to work at.

Slow growth even when you go above and beyond. Very flexible schedule, so good work/life balance. Higher ups don’t like communicating with each other, so you get told different information for projects. But other than that, it’s chill.

Management heavy

I had administrative manager, program manager, mentor and none were available as a supportive resource. The job was completely remote and was difficult to integrate into the culture.

Great place to work for in Wireless domain

* Good place to start your career in, with lots of learning opportunity across multiple domains in tech* Mostly decent WLB, may not be great in some modem teams, especially in launch time windows* Management needs better vision and communication to earn trust of employees

Depends on team

Some team are good. you can learn more. but eventually politics take over. its big public company with lots pros and cons. Its a top heavy management. most of work is carried by low level engineers. worklife balance worst.

many politics

There are a lot of politics and competitions among different groups. Many mangers don't do anything but just politics. They promote people who don't work too much but only because they're their close buddies.

finance department is fast paced. prepare to work at an intense pace and long hours. promotion is mostly fair - but also depends on how late you are able to stay. promotion is more difficult for women with kids who have more restrictive schedules in the evening.

No work life balance

The pay is great, but you'll end up working long hours mon-fri and sometimes on the weekends. Work here as your first job to gain the experience in a fast paced company.

Qualcomm employment

I worked for them through another company and when the opportunity arose I chose not to work for them directly. I didn't like the way they're management treated their subordinates. I also didn't like the way the Qualcomm employees treated employees that were from other companies contracted to work there.
