I was recently contacted by a recruited who wanted to know if I would be interested in another company. This company is pretty well known for often having layoffs. I told him I would have to think about it and will get back to him. To be honest I am... — read more

I have a friend who has a great manager so his experience working here is completely different than mine with a bad manager. I would not like to gossip about him much, suffice it to say that he is absolutely irrational and makes work difficult in... — read more
Do you know typically how much an Apple's ICT5 HW engineer earn? I am in the process of negotiating my compensation and would like to know so that I won't be screwed up.
I don’t know what the secret is, but in this company, those people who deserve it the least are constantly promoted. Totally unfair. I wish I was wrong. A while ago I finally decided it was best to leave so I don't know if the situation is still like... — read more
My understanding was that temps usually get converted within 2 years if they do a good job. I know a few who got converted in a year but a lot more who have been temps for years and years. How do I fight for a full time offer even tho management says... — read more
I’m wondering for how long can Qualcomm block NVIDIA from acquiring Arm? For now, everything is ok, but the whole situation is certainly worrying.
Cost reduction. Making home permanent for certain employees. Office sharing. Terminating leasing of few buildings Allow only essential travel
I think DM is being groomed to be next in line after CA?
It was a very long time ago... but about 13 years ago Qualcomm engineers were considered top of the line... now they are not even considered... just a bunch of people with outdated skills sets that are scared to death to leave bc no one else wants to... — read more
When you knew that with hard work and dedication you could build a career here and expect to retire from this place when the time came? Now this is nothing but a job with zero security and very slim chances of any upward progression. No wonder young... — read more
What a joke this management team is.
Qualcomm short on revenue in first earnings report since CEO change announced Let’s hear all those people stating Qualcomm is very profitable and people are just making things up! Hopefully you are the ones who get let go - just for being a d**b... — read more
Qualcomm has been in business forever and still only has 2 business that make money? Does anyone know why innovation in Qualcomm is nonexistent? Why would top tier engineers stay in a place that hasn’t produced a new product in over 15 years? — read more
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
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

Hidden in fineprint im some random email from HR is a little detail that most people ignored. Q used to treat Sr Staff and above as "executive" for the purpose of giving extra benefits for dental and vision. They have now changed the title to... — 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
