    Pros

    Qualcomm's Wireless Reach division is utilizing their cutting-edge technology in a variety of ways to improve the lives of the global population. The work was both rewarding and interesting. Great group of people to work with. Incredible benefits.

    Cons

    Sometimes culture seemed a little bit static, likely due to Qualcomm's long existence.

  2. Great Internship!

    Pros

    Great growth opportunity and work environment. The company sponsors many internal learning and training sessions to learn both internal infrastructures and useful skills that can be used outside the company.

    Cons

    Feels like a big company. Hard to move up or around and big company bureaucracy is widely prevalent. Time commitment is extremely large as well. Most employees work long hours after going home.

    Pros

    I interned here during the summer 2014. It is a great company definitely. They take good care of inters. The housing is super awesome and the work is super cool.

    Cons

    The actual assignments to particular teams happen very late, almost like 2 weeks before the start of internship, which was not desired.
