    Great company to work for as an intern

    Software Engineer Intern (Current Employee) San Diego, CA

    Pros- Good hourly pay
    - Complete coverage for housing and relocation expenses
    - Plenty of intern events and involvement

    Cons- Work experience is highly dependent on manager and team. It's possible to get stuck doing boring work all summer since it's not normally possible to transfer to a different team as an intern.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave set goals, deliverables, and dates for interns and temps before they come onboand.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Awesome place to spend a summer

    Software Engineering Intern (Current Employee) San Diego, CA

    ProsEveryone is extremely helpful and interested in making sure it is a positive experience. Executives are accessible and will even do lunch one on one with interns. There are a lot of smart people working on bleeding edge technologies. HR is amazing. There are lots of events for interns to have fun outside of work, and San Diego is close enough to paradise.

    ConsIntern projects could be sort of hit or miss. Interns sometimes felt obligated to work extra hours in order to complete tasks, but felt discouraged from admitting to working overtime (and getting paid for it).

    Advice to Senior ManagementDoing a great job overall!

    Quite good and stable

    Interim Engineering Intern (Current Employee) Bedminster, NJ

    Prosgood work environments: free drink and fruit; office is fully equiped and quite large
    colleagues are nice, people like to communicate on work and cooperate well
    working tasks are interesting, combining communication and hardware design

    ConsThere are few public traffic to company site. So it would be very inconvenient without a car.
    There is a canteen in the building, but it closes in the afternoon so only lunch and breakfast is available.

    Qualcomm employer review

    Interim Engineering Intern (Current Employee) San Diego, CA

    ProsIt is exciting to work for a company that is so successful at what it does. Everyone is extremely smart and there is opportunity for personal and career growth. Also, you can't beat a location like San Diego. It's one of the best places in the world to live and work in.

    ConsSame as the downsides for working for any large company. It is sometimes hard to get a good idea of what your work will go to help out the strategic goals of the organization. In a smaller company a single person's work is directly impacting to the success of the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey could implement more efficient and frequent communication with the employees and have a way of transmitting ideas up to them.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
