I have been working at Qualcomm as an intern (less than an 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 full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    At Qualcomm, we get to work on some of the pressing problems in the wireless / mobile industry. Whether it's advancing LTE or building augmented reality software, you are at the forefront of the industry.

    Cons

    Many of initiatives are limited or structured around QCOM's key businesses: patent licensing and selling mobile chips. Software programs are unfortunately handicapped by this approach - building a highly differentiated experience with software that works only on Qualcomm chips while remaining interoperable with other chipmakers is a constant challenge.
