I am a contract employee at Qualcomm. Due to recent incidents in the industry with NXP and what not there is a lot of instability and insecurity going around in the team. Just recently a bunch of people got fired from the team, and now everyone is trying to save their own ass at the expense of others, micro-management, blame game,etc.
Not a great environment to work in, how do you guys deal with this? (Job Hunt is on-going, but don't have anything in hand yet)

    Three people have committed suicide on company premises since I’ve been there if that gives you any idea of the environment.

    I personally dealt with it by leaving. It sounds like you are on the right track getting out as well. Good news is that while Q is firing all US based engineers, the rest of the industry is truly growing so job prospects are quite good.
