    Pros

    Although the experience might be team dependent, my team was fantastic, project was great, manager was super chill (got to go golfing with him), and the support for interns is fantastic! We had SO many intern events and were definitely well taken care of.

    Cons

    Not San Diego, CA so we sometimes didn't get to work on all the cutting edge stuff.

  2. I interned at Qualcomm during summer 2014 and it was wonderful experience. Very technical company, even at manager level

    Pros

    Nice perks as an intern and good compensation

    Cons

    The work you do depends on the team you end up in. Work ranges from building a new product to running a few test cases (depending on which team you are in and what the team lead believes an intern must do).

    Advice to Management

    None that i can think of. My managers were awesome.

    Pros

    A very good place especially if your major is wireless communications under EE/ECE in PhD. You can use what you have learned into practical product in reality.

    Cons

    Kind of busy in work.

    Pros

    Qualcomm's Wireless Reach division is utilizing their cutting-edge technology in a variety of ways to improve the lives of the global population. The work was both rewarding and interesting. Great group of people to work with. Incredible benefits.

    Cons

    Sometimes culture seemed a little bit static, likely due to Qualcomm's long existence.

  9. Solid Company. Good Environment

    Pros

    Great growth opportunity and work environment. The company sponsors many internal learning and training sessions to learn both internal infrastructures and useful skills that can be used outside the company.

    Cons

    Feels like a big company. Hard to move up or around and big company bureaucracy is widely prevalent. Time commitment is extremely large as well. Most employees work long hours after going home.

    Pros

    I interned here during the summer 2014. It is a great company definitely. They take good care of inters. The housing is super awesome and the work is super cool.

    Cons

    The actual assignments to particular teams happen very late, almost like 2 weeks before the start of internship, which was not desired.
