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

    Pros

    They are very generous to the interns. The salary is comparable to the full position. They take care of everything, from transportation to accommodation. They arrange lots of activities for the interns to build the network. The recruiting staffs are very helpful and friendly. You get to work with many talented interns coming from different universities. You will be working on a practical problem that actually makes a difference (if it worked) comparing to writing a paper that nobody cares.

    Cons

    I can't really think of any cons. Some people do not have enough guidance from their mentors because their mentors are busy. But it really depends on your luck.

    I have been working at Qualcomm as an intern (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've interned for a few summers in different departments so I have some perspective on this.

    -Lifestyle. As an intern, they don't want you to have a bad experience. You won't bring work home, and you won't work overtime. Period.

    -Responsibility. People at this company have integrity. Everyone understands the impact the company makes on the world and is respectful of that responsibility. Jerks are noticeably sparse here.

    -Relationships. As an intern, you get to meet a LOT of other interns from all the top Engineering programs across the country and the world. This is the single best part of being an intern at Qualcomm. The relaxed atmosphere outside work lets you bond with your peers better than at school! Interns are housed close together (but not too close) to nurture a sense of community and belonging. Oh yeah, and the really awesome housing is completely covered for all interns. Soft beds, lots of pillows are the little touches that make the summer awesome.

    -Help. HR is very friendly and willing to help you make the most of your summer. Great support system of people.

    Cons

    Communication/Language barriers. But this is more a reflection of the market for hardware and software talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep growing the intern program! The more the merrier.

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

    Pros

    Competitive pay, paid for travel to and from San Diego, provided luxury housing all summer, many intern activities to keep us busy outside of work and help make friends, encouraged learning/job shadowing, and had many seminars to connect the interns with senior level management. This was a wonderful experience!

    Cons

    None come to mind. It was a great summer!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great internship program!

    I worked at Qualcomm as an intern (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.
