Aggressive schedules, long hours, too many status meetings
Staff Engineer (Current Employee), Santa Clara, CAMay 11, 2014
The first thing that I noticed at this company is they have tons of meetings. As someone on glassdoor put it, 20% of the people do the work and 80% ask status. Lot of layers of management. Even some engineers end up just tracking status, once promoted to lead or manager. Most of the work is pushed down to junior engineers, who need to spend long hours – more... and weekends to get work done. There's lot of talk and email about work life balance, so there maybe a chance that other groups are better.
Experienced people hired are not treated on par with people who have been here a while but with comparable years of experience. Apparently Qualcomm's is not growing fast now.
Compensation is good - salary + RSUs. – less

System Support Engineer (Current Employee), San Diego, CAMarch 4, 2014
Pros: evaluated on performance, 2 merit cycles + bonus' per year, healthcare, great boss.
Great place to work. Typically, I'd come in early, complete my daily reports and then move on to projects for the remainder of the day. I was given a lot of freedom to find inefficiencies and streamline them to make them easier for the group/ organization. I often worked with managers and directors closely to identify and locate problems that needed – more... to be solved. The most rewarding part was solving these puzzles - finding and fixing bottlenecks within the IT/operations infrastructure. Most enjoyable part of the job was having the freedom to be creative and work with many different people on projects. – less
