    I worked at Qualcomm full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Worked residential IT prior to the internship, was placed in a technical position and started learning how to support an enterprise. Personally, I had great management support and felt I was placed in the right area.

    Cons

    There are a lot of meetings with different groups of people. It can be extremely hard to follow someone not in your line of expertise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IT departments are hesitant to make an offer after an internship, unlike other areas.
