Awesome HR and accommodations, but the work could have been more interesting.

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

Pros

Good work life balance, competitive pay, San Diego is beautiful, brilliant coworkers, housing and relocation was completely covered, R&D projects are very good, stable job outlook, HR (Campus Team) is by far the best of any company I've ever dealt with, great mentorship, executive speaker series, and they even held an intern hackathon

Cons

We didn't use agile software development, so there was very little flexibility or change as your project progressed. I had a project that was almost identical to the project that I had done the summer before at a different company. Projects are assigned based on what you have a proven track record of doing, and not what you want to do in the future. Shuttles go in loops around campus, and can take 15+ minutes to pick you up if you don't time it right. You could get banned from using the shuttles if you abuse them by taking them to an office that's closer to a mall/food court.

    Pros

    If you can make a lot of of noise about something even if it is low tech, you can build a reputation of a master and climb the ladder quick if surrounded by your own friend. I can't do that and will never do it.

    Cons

    too micro management that kill innovation...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Competition within the company are not very healthy...
