Contemplating on moving from Canada to San Diego. How is Apple’s scenario in San Diego. Heard they are very nascent right now. Interviewing for a DV role at Apple.

what is the future of this satellite center, with intel modem team’s acquisition? or Am I better off moving internally within QC to San Diego.

what TC can I expect at Apple? masters with 12 yoe.

any recent interviewees can share their experience?

    Join Apple. They are planning to grow San Diego to a 1000 people. Coming in early is good, before the rest of us Intel folks get there.
    Expect some fierce turf wars between ex Infineon, Intel, Qualcomm, ROW and existing Apple employees. It's going to be a shit show for some time, but my guess is Apple will crack the whip and restructure this team to deliver.

      +1 have heard even before Intel move, that apple promised the city 1000+ heads will be there. Plus it's San Diego, enough said ...

      Apple promised a second headquarters in Austin Texas if Trump cut their tax rate on corporate taxes for Apple. With 50,000 more people in Austin. It has not happened.

    A competitive offer would be approximately 180base/200 rsu/ 60 joining bonus

      Where are you getting these numbers from ? 12 yoe at Intel probably makes more than that for base.

    All said and done, Qualcomm is a well oiled machine churning multiple products every year. It’s stable too.

    Apple on the other hand is figuring out a path ahead with 5g modems. There is going to be chaos/reorgs and it is going to take maybe q4 2019 and a couple of months in 2020 to get in place a workflow with all the scattered pieces, but from then on, there is room for growth. Apple is going to try hard to reach the same quality as that of Qualcomm by 2023/24. Yes, it would be a risk (wrt job security) but I am fairly certain your learning curve would end up being steeper than at Q considering you ll start working on the design phase of things.

    I've heard mixed reports.

    Some Qualcomm folks moved to Apple in San Diego and they moved back less than a year later because they hated the culture and / or the work wasn't as interesting or well organized.

    You'll generally get paid more by working for Apple than Qualcomm, but the cultures are very different, and you may hate Apple's culture.
