    I worked at Qualcomm (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Amazing intern events that include surfing lessons, hackathons, Servapalooza, summer on the lawn(QSOL) events, technical talks, laser tagging, carnivals, soccer tournaments, volleyball tournaments, movie nights, and much more
    -the Campus Team is great and makes the internship really fun
    -You get to work on ground-breaking projects that will change the future of mobile technology
    -My team treated me as a valuable member of the team
    -Got to push code on a weekly basis and my features were being used by other members of my team
    -Get housed in a fully furnished, luxury apartment with maid service
    -Live in sunny San Diego where there are tons of things to do during the weekends with your fellow interns

    Cons

    - Like most tech companies, there is a lack of diversity. For example, the team that I was in did not have one female developer. However, recently, Qualcomm has made efforts to change this by holding conferences for diverse college candidates

    Advice to Management

    Keep on investing in the summer internship program so Qualcomm can keep attracting top talent

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

    Pros

    Good support network and had a lot of activities with other interns. Work was not the most interesting but at the same time not pure grunt work.

    Cons

    People there aren't very fun or young, but that's expected for a company like Qualcomm. Had great benefits overall, so can't say much here.

    Advice to Management

    I'm not sure what advice I could give to management. Overall the program was great, and I wouldn't change much.
