    Pros

    The company culture is innovation, and the people here truly uphold that. I was always learning and being challenged. All my coworkers were friendly and willing to answer my questions. This is an engineer's dream of a company.

    Cons

    I've heard that your experience at Qualcomm varies from team to team. However, from the interns and full-times that I've talked to, those "bad" teams are quite rare here.

    Pros

    Friendly staff, flexible hours, technically challenging work and a fair amount of free activities (music/sports) during lunch hours. Great opportunities to get patents and learn with the internal voluntary employee presentation scheme.

    Cons

    Poor middle management and work life balance - Management are over-subscribing work and the pressure piles on the lower roles. My team were working 12 hour shifts at times, and commonly arrive at 8am and still have an hour conference call to take at 6pm.

    Internal politics are also a joke. Expect to rvsp managers into email to get a reply.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to say No to work.

    Let interns learn more about other projects within the company

    Pros

    Very good environments, perks and pay for Interns. Work Life balance is good, you need to work for 5 days a week only.

    Cons

    Projects were good. However, you may not be lucky enough to grab a project of your interest. Training material was fine.

    Pros

    Great housing provided. Competitive compensation. Various intern events and guest lectures organized to enhance the overall experience. I would recommend the experience to anyone willing to get an exposure to some of the recent cool technologies.

    Cons

    Did not learn a lot as such on the technical side. Was given a step-by-step task which had to be implemented. The project was completely thought about by the upper management of the team and the specifications provided were sometimes vague, which made the implementation process very iterative and mostly boring.

  9. Very friendly atmosphere, great learning opportunities
