    I worked at Qualcomm as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Qualcomm is an extremely successful company that truly cares about it's employees and interns. The internship program is so strong that I immediately felt apart of the team and involved in each step of the way through the various projects I assisted them with. The people are friendly, smart, driven and fun.

    Cons

    The only reason I would not recommend Qualcomm to somebody is if they were not passionate about wireless technology and the big advances occurring in the industry, or if they weren't keen on the big corporate feel.

    Pros

    1. Great Intern treatment.

    Cons

    1. The pay during the internship was adequate but the full time offer was below par.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys are doing great with the entire experience. The only thing lacking is the compensation (which could be improved to par on other similar companies like nVidia)

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

    Pros

    competitive salary, lodging reimbursement, relocation reimbursement, paid timeoff.
    worked on projects just same as a full-time. oppurtunities to get access to top-level technologies and made real contributions to the future products

    Cons

    management processing was slow, probably due to huge organizations and huge amount of employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    new employee orientation should be more departmental-/team-specific other than general introductions to the whole company.
