    Highly serious technical employee-friendly company

    Interim Engineering Intern (Current Employee) Hyderābād

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

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

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

    Had an awesome experience with Qualcomm :)

    Intern (Former Employee) Hyderābād

    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

    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
