    Pros

    Nice facilities like accomodation,food,transportation available. People are quite friendly. Most of the managers are nice and easy to work with. Flexible work schedule,regular team outings for interns.

    Cons

    Project allocation should be done in consent with the employee. Some of the managers are too busy and soe have quite high expectations. There is quite a space crunch in office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mangement is quite good as far as my treatment was concerned.

    Cons

    Most of the Cons are as follows -->
    1. If not in the right team, you can end up being in support work in Qualcomm India Pvt Ltd.
    2. Work pressures in Qualcomm India are High.
    3. Not all people are easily approachable in QIPL.
    4. US teams don't bother too much about hierarchy, but Qualcomm India still has that.
    5. Can't interact with most employees over talk because of language barrier. Most of them start/discuss in regional language and not in English
    6. Learning curve is not too steep. If you are in development team, you would learn only your module. You may not have a chance to learn other Modules/Technology.
