What is your title and base salary at Qualcomm? Sr. Staff, 203K
Now I just laugh at the false promises that I will be promoted. I've lost all interest in trying to achieve this because there seems to be no way for someone who isn't a brown noser to get a promotion without going to another company. In addition... — read more
I know that no matter how much effort I put in I will not be promoted, so I have lost all motivation. I am a bit skeptical whether the situation is any better with direct competitors in this regard. Thoughts?
I see them posting jobs everywhere for the PMIC group. The team used to have a very bad rap, is this still the case?
Please share your title and bonus target. Senior staff, 12%

The US realized it couldn't trust Beijing, not by a long-shot, which is why it banned Nvidia sales. However, Lebanon will likely come to Beijing's aid and steal whatever is necessary from the US and pass it to Beijing, just to ingratiate itself in... — read more

Qualcomm recruits that special employee who thinks they work in leading edge technology! Who is totally dispensable and can be replaced at the drop of a dime but thinks they are special! That employee who makes no money on stock options and is... — read more
Can anyone name a successful new business Qualcomm has entered in the last 20 years? Or a business that the federal government didn’t have to save Qualcomm from being taken over?? Bc I can’t think of one ☝️????
I heard that qualcomm is going to enter server market, and it acquired a startup founded by ex-Apple employees, wow, what’s going on ?
Don't get me wrong - I'm no cheerleader, but when someone starts talking about the atrophy of skills at Qualcomm, it really gets on my nerves. Why do people think that Qualcomm is to blame for the fact that their skills have atrophied? That's so... — read more
Some are already speculating that there could be cuts. Layoffs may or may not happen, but my non-alarmist advice is that you should always be prepared.
Q misses on revenue! Layoffs coming???
It'll be interesting to see how solid financial results for the last quarter are really going to be and how they'll affect possible coming layoffs. I know nothing has been announced yet and if the numbers are good enough, maybe it'll be a few more... — read more
I was laid off in 2018 and it caught me by surprise. I was told we were going to be hiring more soon and needed to request more H1Bs due to a shortage of engineers…. A month later over 1500 employees were let go… 3 months later all the refs went up... — read more
I know several people who were very much undervalued here and who, after they left, became star employees in other companies. What has Qualcomm become? A nursery of talents? I'm disgusted with how this company is being managed.
Q is the best company in SD! Never has layoffs and is always hiring! Q uses very little H1Bs and only in emergencies. You couldn’t ask to work for a better company, that always takes care of its employees and pays top notch
https://dailycaller.com/2015/07/29/qualcomm-lays-off-4500-workers-while-demanding-more-h-1bs/ Qualcomm has a habit of laying offs a massive amount of people and at the same time asking for more H1Bs to lower cost! Is another round of massive... — read more
What’s the last new invention Qualcomm came out with that actually sold? Is the company still living off the invention of old men from the 90s?
Plagiarising research doesn't make you a researcher.
Just think about it.

Has Qualcomm ever had massive layoffs just to bring in cheaper labor? I definitely saw this in 2018 - does anyone remover another time?
There are ~1500 openings in US. Are they real hirings? What is the chance of next layoff this year or next year?

Many big chip makers are lower guidance. Qualcomm will obvious be hit as well. How do you know your in the chopping block?
I try to be promoted in vain. Could someone please reveal to me the secret of how to get a promotion at QCOM, what are the criteria?
It’s time for me to change my work environment. Is there anyone willing to tell me how much better offer he or she managed to get?
It's a good thing I refused a job offer ten months ago and decided to stay at Qualcomm. The startup that made the offer just laid off nearly half of its employees. The main reason I refused was that I was afraid of losing my seniority in case of... — read more
if they trimmed the non-essential people, they'd save a ton of money on overhead, like office space leasing, etc. And the "culture" would drastically improve too, as the non-essentials who b.s., play politics to seem important, etc would disappear... — read more

There was a lot of rumors about when it would be finally realized. Now the launch is delayed. Is there anyone here who thinks the delay is justified?
Wasteful bureaucracy is common in large corporations, but it is really frustrating here. How many times have you wanted to leave Q just because of bureaucracy? I'm still here even though I think my earnings could be higher somewhere else, but it's... — read more
