    I worked at Qualcomm as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    They really take care of their employees. They provide free drinks to employees and are always having team building events. Some times there is even free food. The leads I worked with were very knowledgeable and helpful. Everyone was very friendly and easy to work with. I was disappointed when my contract ended. I still maintain contact with former coworkers and would go back to Qualcomm any time.

    Cons

    Most if not all entry level positions are Temp. jobs lasting one year.

    Advice to Management

    I am not sure letting go Temp employees after one year is the best strategy. It seems you are loosing valuable experience.

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

    Pros

    Qualcomm has a great internship program. They flew us all out and paid for our living expenses, and also flew us out to San Diego for a weekend. There is also a lot of interaction with your manager/mentor (may depend on your team) and most interns are given projects with an impact.

    Cons

    There is a good amount of bureaucracy, which is to be expected from such a large company.
