    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.

    I have been working at Qualcomm as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Although the experience might be team dependent, my team was fantastic, project was great, manager was super chill (got to go golfing with him), and the support for interns is fantastic! We had SO many intern events and were definitely well taken care of.

    Cons

    Not San Diego, CA so we sometimes didn't get to work on all the cutting edge stuff.

    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.
