    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.

    Pros

    Great growth opportunity and work environment. The company sponsors many internal learning and training sessions to learn both internal infrastructures and useful skills that can be used outside the company.
