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

    Pros

    I interned here during the summer 2014. It is a great company definitely. They take good care of inters. The housing is super awesome and the work is super cool.

    Cons

    The actual assignments to particular teams happen very late, almost like 2 weeks before the start of internship, which was not desired.

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

    Pros

    Interns are really taken care of, pampered almost. Loads of networking and learning opportunities. Interns are also encouraged to take part in activities outside work, like the IdeaQuest competition and community service.

    Cons

    Some interns face issues with being put in a team of their choice. Experience can depend on the mentor and manager you get.

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

    Pros

    - Good hourly pay
    - Complete coverage for housing and relocation expenses
    - Plenty of intern events and involvement

    Cons

    - Work experience is highly dependent on manager and team. It's possible to get stuck doing boring work all summer since it's not normally possible to transfer to a different team as an intern.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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