    I have been working at Qualcomm as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Although the experience might be team dependent, my team was fantastic, project was great, manager was super chill (got to go golfing with him), and the support for interns is fantastic! We had SO many intern events and were definitely well taken care of.

    Cons

    Not San Diego, CA so we sometimes didn't get to work on all the cutting edge stuff.

    I have been working at Qualcomm as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great growth opportunity and work environment. The company sponsors many internal learning and training sessions to learn both internal infrastructures and useful skills that can be used outside the company.

    Cons

    Feels like a big company. Hard to move up or around and big company bureaucracy is widely prevalent. Time commitment is extremely large as well. Most employees work long hours after going home.

    Pros

    Very good company. Lots of activities for intern. Two intern weeks. Paid very good for interns. The business of this company continues to grow.

    Cons

    Depending on department, it can be a workoholic culture. Corporate HQ is far from city life and can be a bit sterile

    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The work done by Qualcomm is really good. You can tell that the people love what they do and help you in any way possible in your tasks too. I got to work on the actual project unlike many other internships around. Amazing benefits for an intern like awesome housing, trip to San Diego etc. The management and HR is very helpful and down to earth.

    Cons

    I couldn't think of any cons. It was a really wonderful experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Qualcomm as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    They are very generous to the interns. The salary is comparable to the full position. They take care of everything, from transportation to accommodation. They arrange lots of activities for the interns to build the network. The recruiting staffs are very helpful and friendly. You get to work with many talented interns coming from different universities. You will be working on a practical problem that actually makes a difference (if it worked) comparing to writing a paper that nobody cares.

    Cons

    I can't really think of any cons. Some people do not have enough guidance from their mentors because their mentors are busy. But it really depends on your luck.
