    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Working with true visionaries like Franklin Antonio, Paul Jacobs, Roger Martin were a once in a lifetime experience that lasted 10 years for me.

    Cons

    All the visionaries are gone. The executives now discuss shareholder value rather than innovation or new technology. This is a short term profit driven company and not a technology driven company. The result - a stock price less than it was 10 years ago.

    Advice to Management

    Incumbent long term management aren't forward thinking. Recent layoffs were another round of people protecting their mates rather than reductions based on need.
