    I worked at Qualcomm (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The projects I worked on were actually used in their products. It's great to know your work during an internship was put to use. The work was interesting but not overbearing.

    Cons

    Not much either than I could've probably been given more work to do.

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

    Pros

    Good pay, excellent housing: fully furnished luxury apartments with housekeeping, amazing location (San Diego), many programs for interns such as lecture series, home room, potluck etc.
    Generally relaxed work culture for interns

    Cons

    Some interns did not get to choose a team (they were directly hired for a particular team). So some of them were stuck in teams whose work they did not find interesting.

    Advice to Management

    Only the digital design and software interns get to pick their team. It would be great if other interns (Analog, Test, Product) also got to pick their teams.

    Pros

    Freedom of thought process
    Very nice work environment and work culture

    I interned at Qualcomm and loved the following:
    -The campus is beautiful and has many great places to hang out
    -The people are helpful and nice
    -The work is challenging

    Cons

    Some things I didn't like:

    -Teams very greatly in quality

    Make sure to keep all your employees engaged and feeling appreciated. This will make a great company better and attract more amazing talent!

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

    Pros

    Was given a real project as an intern. Manager and team were very willing to help me with any questions or roadblocks I ran into.

    Cons

    Documentation is somewhat disorganized and there is so much (because it's a large company) that it can be hard to find the information you need.

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

    Pros

    Despite the uncertain times for the company, interning at Qualcomm was a great experience and allowed me to practice the skills I have learned in the classroom. The college team planned fun events and made sure that all interns were getting the most out of the experience.

    Cons

    Working at a big company caused some pains as setup time to begin my project took 1-2 weeks. Company should look to shorten that bring up time.

    Pros

    The company culture is innovation, and the people here truly uphold that. I was always learning and being challenged. All my coworkers were friendly and willing to answer my questions. This is an engineer's dream of a company.

    Cons

    I've heard that your experience at Qualcomm varies from team to team. However, from the interns and full-times that I've talked to, those "bad" teams are quite rare here.
