    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time

    Pros

    San Diego! Tons of the engineers go surfing at lunch, you get great housing in La Jolla. Everyone I met was really welcoming, and always willing to help. Interns get real projects, so you feel like you're contributing a meaningful way to the company.

    Cons

    None, there were tons of perks and company events throughout the summer around San Diego.
