    I worked at Qualcomm full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The building looked nice and the receptionist was very kind.

    Cons

    I feel obligated to post this as it's still on my mind. I interviewed for Qualcomm over a year ago in their cambridge office. The interview was with 3 people, 2 of which were nice however the mid-level interviewer was incredibly rude to me. I was nervous and struggled to answer questions I usually know the answer to and I was ordered around in ways such as "sit down." "Dont say anything." To make matters worse, at the end of that stage of the interview, the interviewer asked me my ethnic origin and also mocked my credentials as a junior at the time. Overall my worst interviewing experience.

    Good benefits, people go out of their way to assist you if you need help. Always working on the latest and greatest.

    Cons

    Pay isn't the best, was formerly CSR and is still in transition from CSR to Qualcomm, so some Admin things might take a while and slow work down. Very very demanding and tight schedules.
