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 as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Good pay, great benefits, amazing intern community. You get to see a lot of cool things happening behind the scenes of the latest phones. The technology is great.

    Cons

    Asked my manager and mentor for something to do every day. Barely got any work to do. Had a great summer, just wished that I could use my skills better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give interns jobs because there is something to do. Don't make work for interns after they arrive.

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

    Pros

    I think if you are a R&D engineer. You can work very happy for focus on your job. You can co-work with other country and learn more things. Some managers are very smart and good for employee.

    Cons

    Policy didn't do very clear. Some managers or are very good but some are not. Some managers and employee just want to be a idle officer and always push their job to other people or other departments. It's very common on Fab B and Fab C. I hate this very much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more focus on managers. don't let them cheat you. If there's to many fight on Company, we cannot work very happy. People just want to protect themselves and didn't do any benefit for company. We believe Mirasol but we don't believe Qualcomm's management system. We are all very disappoint for QMT in Taiwan.
