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

    Pros

    1.The work environment.
    2. Flexible work hours
    3. Lots of perks as an intern (Regular Outings)
    4. Work on real time projects

    Cons

    The experience, specially of an intern may depend on the mentor and how busy he is. Although my mentor was pretty busy himself, I made it a point to keep in touch regularly and ensure that I was being given decent work to do as an intern. But again, that may not work with everyone.

    Pros

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

    It is a job that demands a lot of time and there is a lack of work/life balance.

    I have been working at Qualcomm as an intern (less than an 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!

    Pros

    great environment and limited heirarchy, you get to work on best projects within the company, project teams are flexible and can be changed if one feels so.

    Cons

    the center in san-diego is perhaps better than those in india. The opportunity to go abroad is open after two years of service.
