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

Pros

-Very smart, friendly, and non-pretentious employees
-Many perks to make you a happy worker (gym classes, activities on site during summer, good food in the cafeteria)
-Transparent workplace
-Open to change and a very forward-looking company

Cons

-Like any big company, corporate dissonance occurred when trying to work with multiple teams
-Seems like the company's structure is not ideally organized

Advice to Management

Please have more jobs open for entry-level students in non-engineering roles!

    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.

    "Great until they decide your unit isn't in the company's future. Reputation for valuing employees is overhyped..."

    Pros

    Word of mouth on Qualcomm is great. The pay, bonuses, benefits, etc., are all great while it lasts. Emphasis on "while it lasts". Technology moves quick, and as soon as your department is not a part of the company's future plans, that's a wrap for you.

    Cons

    The key to Qualcomm is never winding up in a division that isn't in the company's future. As soon as that occurs, Qualcomm will prevent you from interviewing for other divisions, and sell you off like knick knacks at a flea market to the first buyer that comes along. For a company that has a reputation for valuing employees, turns out they do all the same things everyone else does. I guess there's no loyalty anywhere anymore.
