When did you decide to leave Q?

The only thing I'm currently happy with at Q is payment. I started looking for another job and got two offers. I'm still debating whether it is worth accepting a new job that is much more challenging but paid less. My problem here is that the job has... —  read more

The need for invention

Someone here mentioned that in the last 15 years, all the company has been doing is buying or incorporating things rather than inventing something by itself. I know people who say it's not that much of a problem. Do you also think that it is not so... —  read more 

Qualcomm Stays with You

I've noticed that with the majority of other companies, people move on once they leave. Whether they were laid off or walked away, they never look back. Not with Qualcomm. Years on, people still hold on to the hate. You mention Qualcomm to them, and... —  read more

In your opinion

I know this isn’t the place for this but I need some advice. I was hired on almost 2 years ago and sometimes I feel as if my career is becoming stagnant. I’ve spoken with my manager about the possibility of being placed in another BU to gain more... —  read more 

Rule 70-something

I was recently thinking what would be the best advice someone could give to people who are just starting to work here? What do you think? "Try to learn as much as you can and run"? "Don't put in much effort because it's not very valued here"?

Average employee age

Is it just me or is the average employee age continuing to slide down constantly? From what I can tell, the 20-to-30-year-old group is taking over rapidly, about as rapidly as the 50-to-60-year-old group is shrinking. I have no issues with bringing... —  read more 

Who else is suprised?

I'm shocked it's been this long since we've had major layoffs. I'm not complaining, mind you, but in the last five years at least (and probably even longer) I don't remember we've had this much downtime when it comes to cuts. I'm starting to enjoy my... —  read more 

Waste of people's talent?

It is sad how many people there are in QCOM whose skills and talents are overlooked and underutilized by their current job. Total waste of talent. I made the mistake of not paying more attention to the early signs that my career would stagnate here... —  read more
