Overall Reviews at Qualcomm
Vice President of Information Technology | San Diego, CA | Dec 1, 2019
Friendly people, decent company
Qualcomm is a large and still growing company. If you work hard, continue to learn and grow your skills (which was always encouraged), you will be provided with many opportunities. It is a fun company with many events for employees as well as many on campus perks. There are several gyms, cafeterias, movie nights and discount tickets for San Diego venues. They also provide solid benefits with 401K matching. Another thing that is great about Qualcomm is how organized and dialed in everything is. Qualnet is one stop shopping to get anything and everything done from purchasing a domain to booking travel to organizing an All Hands in the Q Auditorium.

Good management, challenging projects. Fast-paced environment, makes you busy all the time. Work on cutting-edge technology. Sacrifice on work-life balance.

Great company to work with.
.This review will be based on my experience only. I worked at Qualcomm Tech Inc for over 16 years overall. Several QC-buildings have coffee stations (a great way to start the day) co-workers were very friendly, and the workflow was somehow moderate, some days were very stressful- dealing with engineers due to their customer pressure, project deadlines or last min emergencies. But, if you like your job, you truly enjoy bad days as well. QC Tech Inc wasn't just an employer, they became a family too. I was lucky to work with a great group, very understanding management staff. QC provides great health, vision, and dental benefits insurance.
ProsWork environment that makes you feel supported, valued and included
ConsUnstable employer- too many lay offs.

Enjoyable place to work long term
Work in accounting and continue to learn something new nearly every month in my 13 year career at Qualcomm. Will say it is more difficult to get promoted as a female and in accounting than finance but that is mostly due to accounting operations having moved to Hyderabad, India. Great place to work and wonderful management team as well as cross functional partners.

Great people, good company
I worked at Qualcomm for 20 years in different roles, and on the whole, it was a good experience. I worked hard, but I was also remunerated amply. In my job there were many times when I worked long hours, but my bosses made sure I got some compensation (whether it was extra hours off or bringing in lunch). One of the things I learned is that the higher up's often make decisions, without having a firm plan.The workplace structure often rigid on certain things, but allowed for an individual to decide on some parts of their role.
ProsRoom for growth, ability to define your job, incorporate
ConsSometimes clueless higher up

It was a temporary job.
Thus no benefits. It was interesting to experiencing layoffs when the work I did was recurring through contractors. Thus full time employees with experience were being laid off and contractors with no experience were guided to failure because the knowledge was lost.

Good place to learn and have fun
Good place to learn and have fun. Management is good and encouraging however there is lot of focus on out-sourcing ..
QC PMO was a great pace in terms of managing 100+ million programs

Fun and challenging place to work with.
I loved working with Qualcomm as a technical lead in LTE and WiFi networks installation and debugging end-to-end and the work was very challenging. I worked in the LTE EnodeB networks more like a scientist as apposed to electrical engineer. I had to debug major issues with new implementations in the EnodeBs made by Hwawei. And a few features were not implemented as expected in the LTE standard.
