    Good summer internship

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

    ProsThe work-culture at Qualcomm was great. The people I worked with were smart and very helpful. The location (San Diego) is amazing. The benefits for full-time employment are also good.

    ConsThe work for my internship was a bunch of programming and testing tasks, with little flexibility in the goals.

    Awesome HR and accommodations, but the work could have been more interesting.

    Interim Engineering Intern (Former Employee) San Diego, CA (US)

    ProsGood work life balance, competitive pay, San Diego is beautiful, brilliant coworkers, housing and relocation was completely covered, R&D projects are very good, stable job outlook, HR (Campus Team) is by far the best of any company I've ever dealt with, great mentorship, executive speaker series, and they even held an intern hackathon

    ConsWe didn't use agile software development, so there was very little flexibility or change as your project progressed. I had a project that was almost identical to the project that I had done the summer before at a different company. Projects are assigned based on what you have a proven track record of doing, and not what you want to do in the future. Shuttles go in loops around campus, and can take 15+ minutes to pick you up if you don't time it right. You could get banned from using the shuttles if you abuse them by taking them to an office that's closer to a mall/food court.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork across divisions and teams more.

    Best Summer Ever

    Engineering Intern (Former Employee) Boulder, CO (US)

    ProsQualcomm has a great internship program. They flew us all out and paid for our living expenses, and also flew us out to San Diego for a weekend. There is also a lot of interaction with your manager/mentor (may depend on your team) and most interns are given projects with an impact.

    ConsThere is a good amount of bureaucracy, which is to be expected from such a large company.
