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

    Pros

    Great company. Located north of San Diego in La Jolla. Very upscale town with beach nearby! I was a summer intern there. I loved meeting the other interns and getting to know about the company. If I could do it all over again, I would have chosen a different team to more align my work with my personal career choices. I removed one start because I think this company needs to work hard to keep itself up meaning it doesn't innovate enough! (A lot of Qualcomm's revenue comes from patents and intellectual property. This is to say the company 'compels' manufactures to pay for Qualcomm's 'innovations' instead of truly innovating and then watching the customers come running to the company to buy its cool tech.

    Cons

    It's not Silicon Valley but close enough!

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

    Pros

    Really great experience, got to work with many very interesting people and on some cutting edge stuff. San Diego was also an amazing place.

    Cons

    Company was going through some rough times. Words of layoffs and restructuring around the offices really put a damper on the whole experience.

    Advice to Management

    Not much, every company goes through stuff like this eventually, but the great companies come out of it better than before. Only time will tell for Qualcomm.
