    Pros

    We have a high energy, results oriented engineering staff.
    The projects have been interesting, challenging, and ground breaking.
    The culture is caring and optimistic. We support each other and everyone is trying to make our products the best they can be.

    Cons

    No truly successful product as of now. We had a successful product but management killed it because it wasn't successful enough. The result was a massive and painful RIF.
    Sales regularly promises the moon with no idea how it will get delivered. Sales is regularly rewarded for this behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Become more "engineer-driven" like the rest of Qualcomm.

  2. Awesome Intership Experience

    Pros

    1. Free relocation package during intern period, including relocation reimbursement.
    2. Great amount of intern activities and is a good way to know other interns from all over the area.
    3. Managers have plans for interns and projects are given based on each one's ability.
    4. They also provide many chances to get to know different teams and fields, and also provide applications for job transition.
    5. Abundant resource such as online training and tech talks, even industrial business introductions.
    6. Great weather, beautiful city.
    7. High opportunity to obtain rehire after finishing acedamy.

    Cons

    1. Work load really depends on the manager. Some are really pushy.
    2. Total amount of interns are too large that they always miss some things or mails for some people.
    3. Some interns get really simple or not-that-critical projects, which makes them feel not participating in the teamwork.
