Great Culture, Boring Work

My team at Qcomm was friendly, flexible, and low stress from what I could tell as an intern. Pay was also insane, they spoil their interns. That said, this early in my career I’m interested in a slightly more engaging job, and I got the sense that this specific team might become boring after a while, which isn’t always a bad thing.All that said, though, I’ve heard dramatically different accounts from other teams. Big companies like this can be variable.

QCOM Chennai is a sweat shop

QCOM Chennai is just a sweat shop where employees are treated like cattle; absolutely no vision or work life balance. Horrible place to work. The only reason people stay here is because people want to be in Chennai.

Good benefits, management could be better

The pay and benefits are great. However, management really depends on the team you're on. My management is not the best fit for me, and they micromanage every aspect of my day and they have been disrespectful and unproductive with their criticism. Their critique has not been constructive to my growth and often seems personal, rather than directed towards helping my professional growth.

Depends on the people you work with

Worked as a temp from main building and moved to manufacturing building. Manufacturing building in shipping department. Supervisor doesn't care about your effort and will take things at face value.

Good company for beginners and entry-level candidates. You will learn a lot. Good health insurance coverage and other benefits. Great support in immigration matters.

If you're not related or best friends with your manager, good luck

If you're not related to or best friends with your manager, good luck. You will be pigeon holed and ground into dust. Firm is bloated is useless middle-management. It's crazy how many people must lose their jobs so the same terrible management can stay in place. They've had lay-offs every year for 10 years, do the math.

good,Excellent team support and work with leading technologyGood pay and interesting workt. Qualcomm is a well-known technology company that designs and sells wireless telecommunications products and services. Chennai is a city in India known for its vibrant culture and economic activities.If there have been significant developments or events related to "Chennai Qualcomm" after my last update, I wouldn't have information on them. For the most accurate and recent information, I recommend checking the latest news sources or Qualcomm's official website. If you have any other questions or if there's a specific topic you'd like to know more about, feel free to ask!ConsWork life balance is team dependent

Constant Lay offs

During my time here, I worked with people who were scared of lay offs in my team and other teams. This shows that the busniess is not very stable. The workers here are respectful and nice though.

Great workplace

Enjoyed my time working at Qualcomm. Would still be there, but was laid-off.The culture is great and was treated well. Pay raise every year and RSU's also.

Great colleagues, not so Superiors

Been working here total of 6years. What gets me by is my colleagues, received lots of support from each other. On my 5th year, I had made a mistake in the production line. After that day, FREQUENT investigations by superiors to the point that I was depressed and lost morale. In this 5years, low increment, high OT, frequent forced AL due to plant shutdown.
