    Pros

    good way to gain experience, I could tell it was a very well run company where the employees seemed happy to work there.

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

    Pros

    Everyone 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.

    Cons

    Intern 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 ManagementAdvice

    Doing a great job overall!

    I worked at Qualcomm as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    For interns:

    - Great intern activities both at work and outside of work
    - Good work life balance
    - Projects: they don't expect a lot from interns, but if you demonstrate to them that you can be trusted with more responsibility, they'll give it to you.
    - Pay is competitive
    - Housing and relocation is paid for
    - Good chance of getting a return offer if you do a good job.

    Cons

    I imagine that it takes a little time to move up here. This might not be a big deal to some people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. You can probably push your interns a little harder.

    I worked at Qualcomm as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Colleagues are smart and hardworking. There is alot of collaboration and everyone is willing to help others out. Additionally, San Diego is a great city to work in.

    Cons

    Space was kind of cramped during my internship. Did not get an office or cubicle, instead got a desk that was kind of just in the middle of the hallway (think receptionist's desk)
