    I worked at Qualcomm as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nice perks as an intern and good compensation

    Cons

    The work you do depends on the team you end up in. Work ranges from building a new product to running a few test cases (depending on which team you are in and what the team lead believes an intern must do).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None that i can think of. My managers were awesome.

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

    Pros

    Work culture, team work and lack of bossism. The best is tried to keep you entertained and maximum efforts put in comforting the employee

    Cons

    Gender ratio is highly skewed. San Diego office seems to be dominating the spree in most departments.

    I worked at Qualcomm as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nice 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.

    Cons

    Project 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 ManagementAdvice

    Mangement is quite good as far as my treatment was concerned.

    I worked at Qualcomm as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    Not 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.

    Former Employee - Intern in Bangalore
    Former Employee - Intern in Bangalore

    I worked at Qualcomm as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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.
