Need help choosing an offer | New Grad

Intel NetGeek07
Apr 4 21 Comments

I currently have two offers and have a hard time making a choice.

Qualcomm, San Diego, GPU Software, Base 100
Cisco, San Jose, Software, Base 125

- Given that I'm equally interested in both technologies(GPUs and computer networks), which one would be a better option in terms career growth, company work culture and location?

The deadlines are fast approaching and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cisco TC = 125,
Qualcomm = 137 (15k relocation + 22k RSU)

      Agree San Diego is better and Qcom is better as a company. You will have better quality of life.

      Comp is much better, especially considering COL. You need 170+ in the bay to match

    No happy people at Cisco. There are happy people at Qualcomm.

      Better roadmap consodering future 5G potential. More scope of money. Overall a better company than Intel. In san diego, its the headquarters of Qcom, so better mobikity within the company if you dont like your team . Also compensation is better

    For Cisco, ask for RSUs and sign on. All my friends were new grads 2 years ago and got 120k base + RSUs with 0 YoE.

      I heard some people ask for relocation and they provide it, but don’t mention it until you ask
