Satisfying experience

Interim Engineering Intern (Current Employee)
Hyderābād

I have been working at Qualcomm as an intern for less than a year

Prosgreat environment and limited heirarchy, you get to work on best projects within the company, project teams are flexible and can be changed if one feels so.

Consthe center in san-diego is perhaps better than those in india. The opportunity to go abroad is open after two years of service.

A Quality summers at Qualcomm

Interim Engineering Intern (Current Employee)
Bangalore

I have been working at Qualcomm as an intern for less than a year

ProsQualcomm provides perhaps the best benefits in the industry. Everything is paid for ( accommodation, food, transport) and you get a competitive stipend of Rs. 20,000. Each intern is assigned one mentor and one manager so you get a lot of attention. There are team outings, quizzes and the workplace itself is full of energy. Innovative thinking is encouraged and the work load is well balanced. Also it has a really high conversion ratio from intern to full time employee. employee

Consthe sex ratio is disapointingly screwed .. out of 39 interns in bangalore in summer 2012 , only 2 were girls. But then the number of girls doing engineering is really less.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great Company to work...

I have been working at Qualcomm

ProsIts an Informal Company. You get lots of Freedom to work,play , do anything.
No questions asked if you do your job right and when I say right I don't mean working your ass off :)

ConsThere is not much innovative work going down here.Usually those are done by the main team and the remaining "deterministic" work is given to the starters.

Great Internship! Would do again 10/10

IT Intern (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA (US)

I worked at Qualcomm full-time for less than a year

ProsWorked residential IT prior to the internship, was placed in a technical position and started learning how to support an enterprise. Personally, I had great management support and felt I was placed in the right area.

ConsThere are a lot of meetings with different groups of people. It can be extremely hard to follow someone not in your line of expertise.

Advice to Senior ManagementIT departments are hesitant to make an offer after an internship, unlike other areas.
