    Kind of busy in work.

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

    Pros

    Qualcomm's Wireless Reach division is utilizing their cutting-edge technology in a variety of ways to improve the lives of the global population. The work was both rewarding and interesting. Great group of people to work with. Incredible benefits.

    Cons

    Sometimes culture seemed a little bit static, likely due to Qualcomm's long existence.

    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.

    Cons

    Feels like a big company. Hard to move up or around and big company bureaucracy is widely prevalent. Time commitment is extremely large as well. Most employees work long hours after going home.

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

    Pros

    I interned here during the summer 2014. It is a great company definitely. They take good care of inters. The housing is super awesome and the work is super cool.

    Cons

    The actual assignments to particular teams happen very late, almost like 2 weeks before the start of internship, which was not desired.

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

    Pros

    Interns are really taken care of, pampered almost. Loads of networking and learning opportunities. Interns are also encouraged to take part in activities outside work, like the IdeaQuest competition and community service.

    Cons

    Some interns face issues with being put in a team of their choice. Experience can depend on the mentor and manager you get.

    Pros

    Nice people, great teams. The culture is relaxed. As an intern, I would say it is a great place to gain experiences.

    Again, as an intern who worked for only 3 months, I was not able to get a sense of the disadvantages working in this company.
