    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.

    High-quality interning environment

    Interim Engineering Intern (Former Employee)

    ProsExcellent housing and compensation package provided to interns. Very good mentoring program - never felt like I was being pressured, but still was able to contribute to 'real' work. Good program for moving into a full-time position.

    ConsThe lion's share of the company's official attention appears to be given to groups that work at the main San Diego campus. Groups that are in other locations (even if still in San Diego) can feel a bit isolated.

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