What advice would you give the CEO of Qualcomm about how to improve it?

When the CEO laid off thousands of people to appease shareholders and deliver on his promise to reduce operating expenses by $1 billion, he was given a $250 million bonus. Imagine how many people's lives he devastated with that decision, and how many people he could have kept employed by not being greedy and accepting that obscene bonus.

Here's an idea ... If you need to reduce operating expenses and the only way to do that is by reducing payroll, reduce everyone's pay across the board by 10% and do not ruin lives by kicking talented, hard-working people to the curb. You would come across as a hero instead of the villain that you have demonstrated yourself to be.

I would advise to institute proof reading of your company's job listings; one example would be your listing #: N1970438. Grammatical errors, spelling mistakes, and an explicit active call to diversity within the listing. While I completely support your companies right to hire, fire, or associate with whomever you chose, I am not sure if you intended this to be phrased in such a way to give an immediate call to seeking diversity. Seeking diversity as opposed to...?

Keep up what u believe in if u plant a good seed in ur company it has no choice but to manifest

The money that we make in China is short sighted. We collect a lot of money in the short-term but we are required to teach a huge competitor that will wreak our technological edge in the long-term. They have the ability to squash our economy, and they don’t play by the same rules. Wall Street is short sighted. Continue to get professional coaching for your position, and don’t rely on the advise of your executive team. Keep up R&D, but make smaller sure bets. Automotive will not sustain the volumes that MSMs and Modems provide. If you buy NXP, trim the fat on both sides of the business.

Kill processes and bureaucracy, keep the company as a mature startup. Don't allow employees to stay for very long period of time in same positions. Rotate them.

None, just keep up the appreciation/recognition methods and you'll continue to have loyal hard working employees.
