    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Many things to learn but you don't have time to learn them anyway as focus is all on execution.

    Cons

    Long working hours, weekends and public holidays are non-existent, sleep deprivation hence many people fall sick (it is very usual and normal here), no time for own hobbies or interests, no time for family bonding, unreasonable expectation by management, project timeline getting shorter every year, leads telling you not to sleep, lack of appreciation for hardwork (in fact appreciation tool and platforms have become better but the amount of appreciation has become significantly less or redundant), no break between projects, no replacement or compensation for overtime works, people expect you to work EVEN ON YOUR MOST IMPORTANT DAY like wedding day, family celebration, family tradition, etc. Basically, expect to sacrifice everything for Qualcomm.
