Go figure. RSUs delayed again. Hopefully doesn't tank before I sell.
For me, it's been (sadly) wonderful. Granted I retired so I'm not looking for a new job but in hindsight QC was the least interesting and least fulfilling place I ever worked at. Lots of good people equally balanced by lots of toxic people, both... — read more
More like working with a group of wild dogs. No matter how well your work is they paint you really bad in review if you make them feel like fool. Too many fools bundle together and their major job is to bite good ppls, at least gsoc. These ppl need... — read more
Q stock sh*t!!!
Each layoff lays off new comers first . Layoff should focus on hostile managers and persons. There are too many folks in q com does not work much and only work using their mouth and jump up and down to show transparency in management. Also many folks... — read more
I recall that there was a thread about intern hires a few months back. I heard from our Eng Ops lead that only about 25% of all US interns were rolled over into future FT roles this year (previous years it was like 80-90%). That’s a pretty big ROI to... — read more

This is the quote so don't spread false rumors of march layoffs. Everyone get back to work (whether you work at Qualcomm or not). "the way we think about it is any hiring that we do will be very selective and focused on really acquiring new skills... — read more
On the modem side, only downsides I see are Huawei using their own chipset for 5G and Samsung using exynos for some of their models. I don't think they would layoff more modem guys because of this????
At chip maker Qualcomm, the company requires that employees spend four days a week in its offices. CEO Cristiano Amon said he doesn’t see a need to change the policy to full-time in-office attendance. “I feel like four days a week, five days a... — read more
Any idea which team would be impacted?
What do we do now?
Seems like small lay off of about 300 in SD.

It is no secret that the PMIC team in San Diego is notorious for its toxic work culture. The toxicity is deep rooted in the department even the HR can't do anything about it. Some examples of bad things that nobody addresses: creating fear, having... — read more

Looks like Q is getting ready for next wave of RIF in US. https://telecom.economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/devices/qualcomm-to-open-new-design-centre-in-chennai-with-rs-177-27-crore-investment-create-1600-jobs/106610292
A little bird mentioned QCOM has been caught doing some shady dealing. A small number of influential companies plan to ignore Qualcomm in Las Vegas. No open hostility, just no time for Cristiano and his gangsters.
We know they are coming, but when will Qualcomm grace us with the first layoff round of 2024? I say before the end of the month.
Is there going to be any reorg or Qualcomm layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
Very wide range of tech at Q. With 7 to 12 years exp, you'd gain significant exposure with SOC based s/w (if on a right team). Huge advantage and can bypass the LC style interviews at faang should you choose at that point. Change teams/companies if... — read more

Which teams are the safest for the next fir ? Can we switch to safest team ?
Did CA pull an IBM? White and Asian males at all costs?
It's fu--ing funny, an excellent CE veteran I know was laid off and is now being hired by a big customer company, and the boss who laid him off is now going to service him - his boss laid him off purely to fight against dissent.
Just curious, what’s the total headcount roll ups in Qpeople after recent headcount reduction?
What are the chances the leadership will let us get acclimated to the new year before hitting us with the next mas-layoffs announcement? Or can we expect something like that in the first or second week of January? Looking at history, the chances of... — read more
Stock is on a tear and all is ok now... I guess??
I just got hired at a new company… and the person who hired me was my former boss at Q who had been fired previously…. Funny how the world works! Even if you don’t like Q - some people at Q are worth keeping in touch with
I'm really wishing for one. Is there any RIFs planned?
I got less RSU (even my rating is higher than AR23) for AR23. Anyone had the similar situation? I
