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
