    Pros

    Good People. Good work. Good housing. Great location. Great Work life balance. If you are ambitious and hard working, Qualcomm is really good company to start your career and move forward.

    Sometimes the work gets hectic. Salary although high and Qualcomm is among best paying companies, it still not as high as compared to other giants like Google or Microsoft.

    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.

    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.
