Had an awesome experience with Qualcomm :)

Intern (Former Employee)
Hyderābād

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

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.

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

Qualcomm - Living my dream

Senior Engineer (Current Employee)
Hyderābād

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

Pros* Exposure to latest tech
* One of the best salary packages in the industry and perks
* Flexible work timings
* Good development work when you push the managers for it
* Best manager I've worked so far [very difficult to find one]. Very encouraging and listens to the needs of co-workers
* Best minds around so good potential for learning
* Challenging and get to work with top tier customers
* Flexibility to change teams

Cons* Not much development work available since management keeps hiring new people and the work is distributed
* Work life balance might take a hit [not for me because I love working]

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease stop hiring new people
