Traveled to San Jose with a QC exec. He mentioned that QC is in "Serious problems". He came to San Jose to discuss with QCA the quantities of people which will be layoff, he mentioned this will continue through the year and next. Few exec. Are... read more
Cannot believe it? Really? Rumors? Lies? Hoax and other things - people do weird things and will lie to you - there are no layoffs again in San Diego.
How the heck do we still keep ppl woth o skillsets. And so many problems with other coworkers. Already at retirement age still cant get rid of him. Over at W.
A close friend from IT told me that he has heard that the eventual intention of Qualcomm is to shut down production in the FAB within 3 to 4 years after they change the sign out in front. Oak Hill will become an administrative site. Ed Bluestein... read more
Is it just me or is Qualcomm a great big train wreck? How will Qualcomm manage a bigger business with the NXP acquisition when we can't manage what we already have. What a tragic mess.
Another one? Ouch! http://www.androidauthority.com/qualcomm-antitrust-fine-806683/

Not just contractors, even good technical people cant survive Qualcomm If your rapport is good with manager , a hardware engineer will lead a software project and hire contractors to get the work done. How do such employees get hired at first place ?... read more
The whole cellular modem chip business is a dead end anyway. You all know it. The „What’s next?“ questions are comings more frequently than ever before. We are already the only company that can make money from modems in the higher end market. Soon... read more
Everywhere I look I see ads for Qualcomm, but what's the point? We have no direct to consumer products, and no one really cares what chip is in their phone as long as it works. I could see it if we went back to making devices, but Q sold that... read more
NXP deal won't happen, this will clearly end the opportunity for the company to succeed. This is the end of the best company in So. California. The future of the company is to keep Sales only in SD. Massive operations movement is in progress. Good... read more
Spoke to a longtime friend from Digital design group, excellent engineer and leader, after more than 20 years he left, the reason: Too much BS and management doing nothing for the employees, many layers of political crap, and bunch of useless people... read more
Why wait for layoffs? I just accepted an offer from Apple and very excited. Goodbye Q. It used to be a great place to work before talented people were driven out or laid off. Now, not so much. Endgame is here folks. Make your own decisions. Staying... read more

I am the only engineer working for this manager at W, he is the QC manager and is asking me to lie whenever the team make mistakes, also he is asking the team to do even basics things such send emails, create ETRs, metric presentations etc. I am not... read more
I want to congratulate Qualcomm on the great job creating the Inclusion and Diversity video, which gives a clear overview of policies and programs. I also want to encourage Qualcomm to review diversity in all departments, for example HR where the... read more
Layoffs were planned, but are on hold pending NXP deal (approval of which is now extended to end of October). Also there was some expectation of MAV going more with Intel, but for now we are keeping the same numbers as on the iPhone 7, which helped... read more
1 - Somebody fixed em up the drank 2 - Is stupid 3 - Be a troll 4 - Other?
I heard that 200+ people were outsourced? Is this correct?
I heard few people got retention RSU's even before the review meetings were over. Is it true ?
So much for crazy people and their rumors of layoffs. I'm so glad I did not panic and go to work at apple. 🍎
Anyone who is saying that there arent any layoffs is either from HR or are too busy resting and vesting all day and dont do any type of of work. I would recommend you actually do some work.
QC is specialist in doing things underground and punish people who shared wrongdoing and layoffs, be aware and good luck.
I hope the rumors people happy now....again no the layoff.
