    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.

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

    Pros

    Great place for internship. Lots of fun Activies and things to do. Great opportunity to meet advisors.

    Cons

    To many people leading to less significant job and low impact job been offered to interns. Low visibility of full time opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Most positions were intern specific and didn't have opportunity to convert to full time. Changing this will get more serious students to sign up.

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

    Pros

    The work environment was fairly autonomous. I would be assigned projects with open ended deadlines. The resources were great, and the development track for interns was top notch.

    Cons

    Never knew if my work was actually being used anywhere. Kinda stuffy for a tech company. Not the best communication between departments, leading to redundancies.

    Advice to Management

    The executive team should guttier hands a little more dirty with the rest of the company. They do a pretty good job, but Qualcomm, especially San Diego isa pretty casual setting. I think the executive team could get little more involved.
