    Pros

    Friendly staff, flexible hours, technically challenging work and a fair amount of free activities (music/sports) during lunch hours. Great opportunities to get patents and learn with the internal voluntary employee presentation scheme.

    Cons

    Poor middle management and work life balance - Management are over-subscribing work and the pressure piles on the lower roles. My team were working 12 hour shifts at times, and commonly arrive at 8am and still have an hour conference call to take at 6pm. Internal politics are also a joke. Expect to rvsp managers into email to get a reply.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to say No to work.

    Pros

    It 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.

    Cons

    Same 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 Management

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

    Pros

    The company offers good benefits, and a good compensation. The people are nice and the working atmosphere is pleasant. Qualcomm likes to emphasize on balancing work life and hobbies. There are nice events organized for employees. I think it is a great place to work for when you have a family. Your working hours are also very flexible.

    Cons

    Big company, can feel lost sometimes as an intern. I worked in two different groups. I hated the first one but really liked the second one. Your experience depends a LOT on your group (and therefore your manager too). I did not learn much in my first group but learned a lot in my second group in a shorter period of time.

    Advice to Management

    Really depends... first manager did not care about me. Second manager was awesome.

    Pros

    It is fair to say that the interns are high class citizens. Regular employees are jealous about the intern activities. San Diego is a nice city. Decent and spacious parking lots. HR cares interns. It's true.

    Cons

    Cafeteria food is not of a great quality, sadly. The unlimited supply of soda will hurt the health of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Is FloTV a good business decision?
