    Ask for more stocks. This is like 5-6k per year after taxes.

      RSU for return interns is 40k over 3 years. Doubt they will negotiate

      ^ qcom VERY RARELY negotiates. Its dumb , but they do it. They project SanDiego as this utopia that they are helping you to stay as if they own the city. I know its dumb.

    Wow. I have heard Qualcomm is lowballing new grads these days , but wow this is a seriously low offer. Maybe for 2019 they are doing this. The base for new grad should be $108k . And no, Qualcomm doesnt negotiate.

      Does qcom distinguish between new grad Masters and bachelor's? PhD comes in at senior level.

      There used to be a distinction. Have you ever heard about the β€œinvisible” 3 year mark to get promoted to a newer level ? What used to be that people with Masters would have to wait a minimum of 3 years to get promoted to Sr, while those with a BS degree would wait a minimum of 4 years.

      This has all changed now. As part of its retention plans, Qcom resorted to promoting people (BS and MS grads) en-masse this time. So to answer your question ,no, qcom doesnt differentiate now.

      But it may go back to its old formula once it is not bleeding for employee retention

    No. Qualcomm does not negotiate. What you are getting, however, is worth vastly more than what non Sandiegans here are telling you because they have no idea. SD 100k is 200k in SJ. And the food and weather is better than SJ.

      This is Not entirely true. If you are renting then it's about 1k more per month in SJ.

      You cannot just think of rent alone. Every expense goes up when the rent is higher. I have lived in both places and SJ and BA have higher price tags on everything.

    This is in SD though which doesn't have a super high COL and is an amazing place to live.

    100k is still a good salary and this time the bonus was better. So you will be compensated pretty good the year after you join. Compared to salaries from Amazon etc this is definitely less. But you r in different industry altogether

    this is san Diego though not Sillicon Valley. your first year TC would be 100+20+10=130k for San Diego.
