I worked at Qualcomm as an intern for less than a year

Pros

For interns:

- Great intern activities both at work and outside of work
- Good work life balance
- Projects: they don't expect a lot from interns, but if you demonstrate to them that you can be trusted with more responsibility, they'll give it to you.
- Pay is competitive
- Housing and relocation is paid for
- Good chance of getting a return offer if you do a good job.

Cons

I imagine that it takes a little time to move up here. This might not be a big deal to some people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you're doing. You can probably push your interns a little harder.

    I worked at Qualcomm

    Pros

    The fastest growing telecom company. SO has a lot of projects under its wings.
    Software roles are very diverse, varying from kernel teams to front end.

    Cons

    Very large company so the growth can be a bit slow.
    Salary not as much as in other major software companies.
    The cafetaria is very expensive throughout the campus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The must increase the pay of software professionals and make it comparable to other big players if they want to retain the talent.
    Should provide more benefits to the employees and the food on campus must be improved.

    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good work/life balance compared with other major IT companies. Great benefit, great insurance. San Diego with its sunshine make you just feel good.

    Cons

    Traffic is a constant concern, coffee is another. Somewhat stringent policy compared against startup.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe a soundproof room would be great way to release pressure.
