"My experience with Qualcomm was unforgettable. Qualcomm and my relationship with the manager provided me work from home in my desperate situations where they had never done before. Provided my circumstances and situation help me out, I would love to work with them again at any cost. What all matters at the end of the day of your work is peace and healthy relationship, not money, where I had seen all those with Qualcomm. Coworker's helpful nature and Qualcomm great support makes me feel I had a step up in my life."

"I worked with Qualcomm for 5 months, I believe the upper management takes great efforts to improve employee morale, especially with the COVID-19 pandemic, giving employees company giveaways, increased break time and gift card money for meals. My immediate supervisor was great, some of my co-workers could improve on work ethic and production/sense of urgency. Overall it was a positive experience, a lot more on campus benefits will be open to employees once the pandemic subsides."

"Worked for Qualcomm as a summer intern and enjoyed it, had a great mentor and supervisor guide me with my project and enjoyed intern homerooms where I got to chat with other interns. Sucks that I had to do it remote this summer instead of enjoying the beautiful beach in San Diego but was still worthwhile."
