Eh, it's ok. There are very few women in my group.

This is a great place to work if you are earlier in your career. There is some unfairness to women, but in the lower rungs it is very subtle and infrequent and the project experience you get working here is fantastic. However, I worked in a group that was at least 50% female and we had no female managers or directors. On leveling spread, men tended to be a couple levels higher overall with titles than women in our group. Once you want to actually start achieving manager and director level titles, there is a lot more resistance and women are often left behind.

It's a great company for younger women. But it's much harder for women to get promoted to manager/director (or higher) levels. There are very few women at these levels.

It is a tough environment for women. You need to have a boss who is an advocate for you and diversity.

Qualcomm is a great company. However, the environment is incredibly competitive. You will not move forward unless you are aggressive and competitive. Tech savvy people have a much better opportunity of moving forward as well.

If you are a woman and work for another woman, you are in trouble. If you are a woman with kids and work there at all, your job will be given to someone else. You will always be in a supporting, subordinate almost admin role. They will proactively tell you it is to help you with "balancing" your home duties. I have sat in meetings with my female superior at 2PM that are running over and she will stop and ask if I need to get home to the baby. What? On a daily basis I am shocked by the ineptitude, lack of leadership and lack of integrity. I go home every day feeling awful.

It is male dominated company. They logically 'try' to treat women equally but dont always succeed. Women with kids usually leave early to pick up kids and they are usually badly judged due to this. Lot of late hours and weekend support is needed. refusing any of it goes against you and effects are seen in bonus rating

Depending on the department and level women can do well. Certain sub groups are heavily female based.

My department management treats man and women equally. Gender is not a factor into consideration for promotions at this level; however, higher positions (VPs and above) are occupied predominantly (almost exclusively) by males.

Scenarios change from group to group. The company is to big to make a general statement for all departments.

Non-engineering women can hold mid-level mgt roles; this is a very male engineer dominated company. Outspoken women are side-lined and passed over before they make it to upper management. Company talks the talk but does not walk the walk.

Women can be lower level managers if you are not in the engineering realm.
