    Best Summer Ever

    Engineering Intern (Former Employee) Boulder, CO (US)

    ProsQualcomm has a great internship program. They flew us all out and paid for our living expenses, and also flew us out to San Diego for a weekend. There is also a lot of interaction with your manager/mentor (may depend on your team) and most interns are given projects with an impact.

    ConsThere is a good amount of bureaucracy, which is to be expected from such a large company.

    Had an awesome experience with Qualcomm :)

    Intern (Former Employee) Hyderābād (India)

    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
