    I have been working at Qualcomm as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Many projects, smart people, good culture.

    Cons

    Many projects dont see day light and are kept as backup options. So if you project gets selected to be deployed, then it is worth the work, else no one uses what you created.

    I have been working at Qualcomm as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Good hourly pay
    - Complete coverage for housing and relocation expenses
    - Plenty of intern events and involvement

    - Work experience is highly dependent on manager and team. It's possible to get stuck doing boring work all summer since it's not normally possible to transfer to a different team as an intern.

    Have set goals, deliverables, and dates for interns and temps before they come onboand.

    I have been working at Qualcomm as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is extremely helpful and interested in making sure it is a positive experience. Executives are accessible and will even do lunch one on one with interns. There are a lot of smart people working on bleeding edge technologies. HR is amazing. There are lots of events for interns to have fun outside of work, and San Diego is close enough to paradise.

    Cons

    Intern projects could be sort of hit or miss. Interns sometimes felt obligated to work extra hours in order to complete tasks, but felt discouraged from admitting to working overtime (and getting paid for it).

    Advice to Management

    Doing a great job overall!

    I have been working at Qualcomm as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    good work environments: free drink and fruit; office is fully equiped and quite large
    colleagues are nice, people like to communicate on work and cooperate well
    working tasks are interesting, combining communication and hardware design

    Cons

    There are few public traffic to company site. So it would be very inconvenient without a car.
    There is a canteen in the building, but it closes in the afternoon so only lunch and breakfast is available.
