    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.

    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.
