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

    Pros

    Very good environments, perks and pay for Interns. Work Life balance is good, you need to work for 5 days a week only.

    Cons

    Projects were good. However, you may not be lucky enough to grab a project of your interest. Training material was fine.

    I worked at Qualcomm as an intern (less than a 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.

    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 a 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.

    Former Intern - Intern in Bangalore

    I worked at Qualcomm as an intern (less than a 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.

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

    Pros

    great 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.

    Cons

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