    Great internship experience

    R&D Intern (Former Employee) San Diego, CA (US)

    ProsSmart people, interesting projects, and lots of opportunity to succeed. Qualcomm provides what an internship truly should be - a learning experience that benefits both the company and the intern.

    ConsLong work hours are sometimes needed in order to complete projects and tasks on time, although no one expects you to work more than you are supposed to.

    Wonderful!

    Research Intern (Former Employee) San Diego, CA (US)

    ProsWorking environment is nice.
    I could do whatever I proposed as my summer intern project.
    In addition, in such a top company, you would have the chance to learn a lot and take a look of many new technologies.
    They also coordinate a lot of fun stuffs and activities for interns.
    San Diego is a wonderful city!
    One other thing is that Qualcomm provides housing for all interns.
    The provided housing is amazing......

    ConsOnly free drink...but not free food like that in google or facebook.

    Fun environment to work and interact

    Product Management Intern (Former Employee) San Diego, CA (US)

    ProsWork at Qualcomm was not terribly overwhelming, but not completely trivial. Projects were manageable and allowed me to interact with a large number of people from throughout the corporate hierarchy. Also free sodas, waters, coffee and tea in every building.

    ConsSome dead time between projects, but nothing too terrible.

    Internship Experience At Qualcomm Bangalore

    Intern (Former Employee) Bangalore (India)

    Pros1.The work environment.
    2. Flexible work hours
    3. Lots of perks as an intern (Regular Outings)
    4. Work on real time projects

    ConsThe experience, specially of an intern may depend on the mentor and how busy he is. Although my mentor was pretty busy himself, I made it a point to keep in touch regularly and ensure that I was being given decent work to do as an intern. But again, that may not work with everyone.
