Not that I;m trying to evoke layoffs but it’s been unusually quiet at my location and within my team. Are layoffs going on in any part of the company these days?

What's happening to MR&friends in Intel?
This guy who has spent 13 years at Qualcomm tried to add me on LinkedIn, and I felt really sorry for him. He put stuff like C programming, WCDMA, RF on his LinkedIn. These are totally irrelevant skill sets in 2019. The only thing this guy has gained... read more

Now South Korea rolling back fine penalyzing the mighty Qualcomm after 10 years. Seems to support USFTC ruling in favor of Qualcomm. Sorry Applerettes.
Do you think NJRC still has a future? Are people happy there?
Does Qualcomm hire previously laid off employees? Please answer question only, not looking for advice. Serious responses only please.
Last year, affected people started being notified in April. I wonder if there will be another big round of layoffs this year. With so many good people leaving, will it be necessary? I’m hoping for some good TV.
I’m not trolling, trying to stir the pot, or anything. I ask this question in light of the announced job postings in San Diego. Allegedly the postings were withdrawn, but I would still like some opinions on how many Q employees that fit those job... read more
Hear from VP that something is in works on the compensation front to stem the attrition in modemSW (it's not retention bonus)
It seems that at my team a lot of people are taking jobs at other companies and I know some are in talks with other companies. I wanted to ask the folks on this board are there similar experiences at other teams and locations, in other words, Is... read more
Apple website has stopped posting hardware jobs in San Diego since March 8th. What is their motive, to begin with.
Regarding the ruling that Q has to pay $1 billion rebate payment, I think that the ruling can potentially make more damage for the company than we expected. 1 billion is a lot of money, but Q is a big company, and should it come to that, pazing that... read more
took many years but keeping nose to grindstone really paid off. So long mav your days are numbered. so many bright days ahead. Oh by the way it is Japanese FTC.

If you google news about qualcomm the first 20 or so articles that come out in the search engine are either about the lawsuit against Apple or the FTC case. Is it possible that the leadership is turning all of their thoughts and resources towards... read more

I've had a decent (not great, not terrible) role here at Q over the last couple years. I find the work engaging, especially lately. I had a recruiter call a few weeks back, which led to an interview. I got an offer the next day. The pay is 20% better... read more
SM was feeling the heat today
I moved from Q to one of the so called big companies. . the culture in every big company is bad, add to it the stress of living in silicon valley with no affordable housing, traffic and general overpopulation and you start to wonder why anyone would... read more
Looks to me like Q leadership is using the patent disputes as an excuse for a lot of flawed practices at the company. I wonder what will their story be when all these process reach their end, and when the company will have to face the consequences of... read more
Does anyone know whether Apple compensates for unvested RSUs or not? I know many big companies ask for new hire's eTrade statement and give the RSUs to compensate for unvested ones, in addition to new hire RSUs. Does Apple do that?
The worldwide dispute with Apple is slowly turning into the dirtiest process I’ve ever seen. Seriously, so many punches under the belt? A can’t imagine any good can come from this to either of the companies... read more
The reality is that most of the good talent left some time ago. What you have remaining are either unskilled "managers" or the people who have spent their careers brown-nosing said "managers". Most the remaining people couldn't get through the... read more
Seriously, why would they? Good engineers always have options at other companies, and why would they, in their right mind, want to stay at a place where they will always feel unsafe?
With a PIP you have a 15% chance of surviving at QCOM; a general statistic in the industry. Legal action against a lawyer ridden behemoth is financial s---c-de. A hard fact to accept is that you are hated by someone with power - this ain't changin'... read more
Given the dismal performance of the board last year will there be a show of thumbs down atleast for the ceo by the big firms that hold qcom? Conveniently no mailers were sent this year soliciting our votes.
Qcom has employee friendly policy. Unfortunately, HR is on the management side to promote toxic work environment. Ignore all precious feedbacks from many frustrated good engineers. HR is pretending that all feedbacks are carefully reviewed. That's... read more
Apple dealt a blow, loses star witness in Qualcomm trial A former Apple engineer who Apple says co-invented one of the patents in question is no longer intending to appear. He got cold feet. Apple lawyer juanita says QCOM got to their witness. If... read more
Looks like a low strike for a company of that size and credibility, but , in my opinion they will get away with this plan. The way things stand right now I see a lot of Qualcomm folks updating their CVs and taking a shot at Apple.
Right about a yr ago those loser nanny state execs went to the president to complain AVGO was about to take their gravy train. Right now WSJ reports on the same whinging execs running back to the white house asking for another bail out since the FTC... read more
Had the displeasure of working with them a few years ago. They had this support portal and oh f--- was it agony. You kinda gave up using it after months of learning the Qualcomm engineers replies would be : slow, muddled and barely make sense... read more
At the workforce advisory meeting Ivanka is on Trump's left and Tim Cook is on his right. It seems to me Apple has the political advantage...
It would be interesting investigate the selling patterns of QCOM insiders https://finance.yahoo.com/news/sec-executives-sell-after-buybacks-stock-underperforms-193026227.html
We all want $82, but settle. SM is settling with FTC, settling with AAPL and you should settle for $55. Its not $82, but quit quibbling, close enough !
