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

    Pros

    For interns:

    - Great intern activities both at work and outside of work
    - Good work life balance
    - Projects: they don't expect a lot from interns, but if you demonstrate to them that you can be trusted with more responsibility, they'll give it to you.
    - Pay is competitive
    - Housing and relocation is paid for
    - Good chance of getting a return offer if you do a good job.

    Cons

    I imagine that it takes a little time to move up here. This might not be a big deal to some people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. You can probably push your interns a little harder.

    colleagues are nice, people like to communicate on work and cooperate well
    working tasks are interesting, combining communication and hardware design

    HR/Staffing could be more professional in their work.
    Compensation could be reconsidered to be best in industry than just being competitive at maximum.

    Pros

    Great perks
    Smart People
    Cool San Diego
    State-of-the-art technology

    Cons

    Although it is a great place to work, bureacracy rules big time. Everything gets delayed, since there is a lot of hierarchy

    Advice to Management

    Initiate recognition and rewards for outstanding employees. re-organise the hierarchy with less or no bureaucracy. More work-life balance needed, since most employees spend time in office.
