    I worked at Qualcomm as an intern

    Pros

    Lots of intern events, great campus

    Cons

    "It's not what you know, it's who you know" is definitely true with this company. If you don't know anyone currently working there, good luck with getting a full time offer.

    Advice to Management

    Be more supportive of your intern. Be open about full time opportunities (if any). Provide networking opportunities outside of department to help intern familiarize themselves with the company.

    I worked at Qualcomm full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked there for a few years in IT operations. Lots of internal tools and procedures to learn. Everything goes by the book following process flow and guidelines.

    Cons

    I felt some of my skill set was not properly put to use due to the large nature of the organization. In other words redundancy. For a single task or skill set there would be many to address it.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on culture change. You're never going to attract talent with your dinosaur culture.
