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

    Pros

    Nice perks as an intern and good compensation

    Cons

    The work you do depends on the team you end up in. Work ranges from building a new product to running a few test cases (depending on which team you are in and what the team lead believes an intern must do).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None that i can think of. My managers were awesome.

    Pros

    - Good hourly pay
    - Complete coverage for housing and relocation expenses

    Have set goals, deliverables, and dates for interns and temps before they come onboand.
