A very good company to intern especially for electrical/electronic engineer

Interim Engeeniring Intern (Former Employee)
Hyderābād

I worked at Qualcomm as an intern for less than a year

ProsNice facilities like accomodation,food,transportation available. People are quite friendly. Most of the managers are nice and easy to work with. Flexible work schedule,regular team outings for interns.

ConsProject allocation should be done in consent with the employee. Some of the managers are too busy and soe have quite high expectations. There is quite a space crunch in office.

Advice to Senior ManagementMangement is quite good as far as my treatment was concerned.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

For a software Engineer, there is not much of innovation or really challenging work happening at Qualcomm India.

Had an awesome experience with Qualcomm :)

Intern (Former Employee)
Hyderābād

I worked at Qualcomm as an intern for less than a year

ProsI did my summer Intern with Qualcomm and I enjoyed working at Qualcomm. The best thing about this company is you get to work with the real time projects which others companies normally not allowed interns to work on. The environment was very friendly and the people were very cooperative.

ConsNot a very good company for CS graduates(In terms of work but they do offer a competitive package to software developers also ;) ) the reason supporting my argument is that the development work is relatively less in India as compared to San Diego (Head Quarters Qualcomm), it also depends on which team you are part of, i did my intern in software field only but luckily i got a very good project to work upon and learnt lot of new things from it, so you cannot be sure that the team in which you are going to put in will have very good development work.

Internship Experience At Qualcomm Bangalore

Intern (Former Employee)
Bangalore

I worked at Qualcomm as an intern for less than a year

Pros1.The work environment.
2. Flexible work hours
3. Lots of perks as an intern (Regular Outings)
4. Work on real time projects

ConsThe experience, specially of an intern may depend on the mentor and how busy he is. Although my mentor was pretty busy himself, I made it a point to keep in touch regularly and ensure that I was being given decent work to do as an intern. But again, that may not work with everyone.

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