    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

    Good work/life balance, Cutting edge work (if you're lucky enough to be assigned to it)

    Tend not to take interns seriously, often projects are found last minute

    Take your interns more seriously (in terms of assigning them meaningful work)

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

    Pros

    - Good hourly pay
    - Complete coverage for housing and relocation expenses
    - Plenty of intern events and involvement

    - Work experience is highly dependent on manager and team. It's possible to get stuck doing boring work all summer since it's not normally possible to transfer to a different team as an intern.

    Advice to Management

    Have set goals, deliverables, and dates for interns and temps before they come onboand.
