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

Pros

Interns are really taken care of, pampered almost. Loads of networking and learning opportunities. Interns are also encouraged to take part in activities outside work, like the IdeaQuest competition and community service.

Cons

Some interns face issues with being put in a team of their choice. Experience can depend on the mentor and manager you get.

    Pros

    Clear processes given for each job description. Process driven environment.

    Cons

    Processes are not effective or efficient. Micromanagement is the norm. Bureaucracy amongst management hinders growth on all levels. Many long time employees do not work or show up for work because they are "already in the system" and their friends lie and say that they are at work even though they are gone for the day. Double standards for people who kiss up to management, regardless of work product.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on performance and treat everyone equally. Create room for growth.
