Any ideas when the next big round of layoffs is going to happen? I'm not talking about the usual two here, three there type of layoffs that take place all the time. I'm asking about the nearly guaranteed start-of-the-year culling that I'm honestly... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Qualcomm Inc.
Is there anyone to whom the agreement to acquire NUVIA seems a bit surprising? Some speculate that this is actually Google’s missed opportunity. I must admit I was surprised but that acquisition does sound promising. Time will certainly show... — read more

How likely is that there will be Qualcomm Layoffs 2021? Any news or rumors?
Got reviewed as Sr. Staff first time (promoted last year) I am wondering if what I got is fair. Bonus: 20 K, RSU 65K It seems super low. I used to get more than this when I was a staff? My score is 3.
Is it true something is coming?
Post your score and your monetary rewards so we can see if we got screwed or not. Promoted from Senior to Staff: +21% base 15k bonus (lower than last year) 50k rsu
And rewards management. Last year was just a carrot...not real change, back to normal!
Was promoted to Engineer (India) last year from Associate. Got 2 star this time, though fairly worked hard and did more than goals assigned. Was told because got promotion last year. Would be rated 2. Is it acceptable ? Shall I raise with HR ? — read more
Number of mobile BU customers are capped. After heavy R&D investment on 5G, 5G is stable enough. Hence the reduction in investment in mobile BU. Also there is uncertainty of APPLE after 2 years and Samsung also takes qualcomm chip in limited... — read more
Have people gotten what they expect? from the email it looks as if the RSU pool is good this year ...
Qualcomm only has 2 businesses that make money (qct and qtl). No other business is turning a profit. For someone to think that any other business is safe must be a troll. Also is Qualcomm does not provide chips to apple or Huawei in the future there... — read more
Hi, I plan to give a 2-week notice with my last day of November 20. It’s no accident this will coincide with the RSU vesting date. Do you think there’s any chance they’d decide to move my last day up to avoid this? I work in a non-engineering... — read more
Qualcomm preparing for a big stocking stuffer this year... filled with layoffs and no raises or promotions!
Got an offer from Qcom. Wanted to know if there are any active rumors of layoffs in the coming few months ?
I have joined Qualcomm in last week of June and resigned on July last week as I got into tier-1 company. On my last day i have copied some of the testplans and SoC Block diagram. The very next day i got a call form HR asking me for explanation about... — read more

I have a family and I would like to know more, there are rumors but not sure if that is a truth
Does anyone know what was the typical percentage salary increase from snr. eng to staff eng at QCT recently, e.g., 2018-2019? Also, does it differ between modem and non-modem? Would appreciate any input. Thanks.
Keep hearing this week in the GPS labs, on outsourcing and lay offs in US-SD. Anyone has more information?
Does anybody have any reliable lay-off info? I have a family , need to know. No trolls please. Thank you
15% lay-off in September, people who worked more than 10 years will be severely impacted. They are replaced by young or and fresh graduates.
Got excellent ratings and was promoted to Staff not too long ago. They escorted me out right away. Did not even get a chance to copy my personal docs from my machine. Super bummed.
My boss insulted me saying that I am talking like high school kid though I have doctorate. I felt really insulted but could not react immediately as I was gone to frozen mood. I did not believe Qualcomm has such bosses . Where should I report ? Or... — read more

question is how many and when
As I know there will be a huge lay being planned within the two months, demand from China declining, phone shipment declining by 50%. Management wanted to postpone layoffs but cash reserve is depleting faster than everyone thought.
