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.
