    I worked at Qualcomm (Less than a year)

    Pros

    people work on cutting-edge technology.Leader in their field.Help the interns in basic requirements which helps them in adjusting in new city.Mentor and managers are very helpful.Interns can opt for their favorite team if they want to join as full time.

    Cons

    Sometimes there is no predefined project for the interns.So interns do not know what to work on for 3-4 weeks.The building which was appointed to me was very dark.No proper lightings.

    Advice to Management

    Management is very good overall.But they can ask the interns for their preferences before assigning them random team.

    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

    Really great experience, got to work with many very interesting people and on some cutting edge stuff. San Diego was also an amazing place.

    Cons

    Company was going through some rough times. Words of layoffs and restructuring around the offices really put a damper on the whole experience.

    Advice to Management

    Not much, every company goes through stuff like this eventually, but the great companies come out of it better than before. Only time will tell for Qualcomm.

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

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment. Nice people. Every flavor of lacroix available in the break rooms. Great experience as an intern. People are more than willing to help teach you, if you ask nicely.

    Cons

    Projects tend to be mundane. Tools are unmaintained or nonexistent for working with any software that isn't the newest version. Documentation is nowhere to be found. There is a general sense of acceptance that 'this is the way things are', and 'thats someone else's problem'. These attitudes are both contagious and damaging.

    Advice to Management

    Patents may have built the company, but its going to take more to save it. Stay close to what you know best.

    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.
