Former Intern - Software Engineer(Internship)

I worked at Qualcomm

Pros

Good people, good support, interesting project

Cons

Not any I can think of

Current Employee - IT Analyst Intern

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

Pros

People always willing to help. Lots of experts and the company is very flexible about the work hours and allows a lot of work from home (they did that before coronavirus)

Cons

As it's a big company, climbing the ranks might not be the easiest thing to achieve and you mind find yourself stuck with a slow progression system if you are not one particularly bright individual... when it comes to dealing with a big companies birocracy.
