    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.

    Interns should be asked for preference when assigning them teams or projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Intern should not be put on teams with busy managers who are unable to guide them

    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.

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

    Pros

    Qualcomm provides perhaps the best benefits in the industry. Everything is paid for ( accommodation, food, transport) and you get a competitive stipend of Rs. 20,000. Each intern is assigned one mentor and one manager so you get a lot of attention. There are team outings, quizzes and the workplace itself is full of energy. Innovative thinking is encouraged and the work load is well balanced. Also it has a really high conversion ratio from intern to full time employee. employee

    Cons

    the sex ratio is disapointingly screwed .. out of 39 interns in bangalore in summer 2012 , only 2 were girls. But then the number of girls doing engineering is really less.

    Its an Informal Company. You get lots of Freedom to work,play , do anything.
    No questions asked if you do your job right and when I say right I don't mean working your ass off :)

    Cons

    There is not much innovative work going down here.Usually those are done by the main team and the remaining "deterministic" work is given to the starters.
