    Pros

    1. Great Intern treatment.

    1. The pay during the internship was adequate but the full time offer was below par.

    You guys are doing great with the entire experience. The only thing lacking is the compensation (which could be improved to par on other similar companies like nVidia)

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

    Pros

    Qualcomm is an extremely successful company that truly cares about it's employees and interns. The internship program is so strong that I immediately felt apart of the team and involved in each step of the way through the various projects I assisted them with. The people are friendly, smart, driven and fun.

    Cons

    The only reason I would not recommend Qualcomm to somebody is if they were not passionate about wireless technology and the big advances occurring in the industry, or if they weren't keen on the big corporate feel.
