Clearly, salaries vary across the region but candidates have to factor in cost of living and taxation before making a conclusion about where to apply.

Eastern Europe and beyond

Back in 2005, a McKinsey and Company study pointed out that Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic produce highly competent electronic engineering graduates compared to those coming from other nations with lower salary requirements. The assessment was based on things like productivity, language skills, and the quality of the education they receive.

The report also suggested that it was a well-kept secret.

It seems that the secret is out. Motorola, Intel, Hewlett Packard, Dell, IBM, Samsung, Lucent (Alcatel), Siemens, Nokia, and most recently Google have now hired more than 10,000 engineers in Poland over the past few years.

And Romania, which also gets high marks for its engineering talent, is seeing increased activity in recent months, with Freescale Semiconductor and VDO, the Siemens automotive subsidiary, both posting jobs to seek a mix of software, test engineering, and systems engineering talent. The trend could partly explain why recruiters for Western European electronics companies are noticing a slowing of the flow of candidates from those countries.

Last year we saw a lot of applicants from Eastern Europe, but not this year, so far,” said Peters of ICP Search.

The evidence suggests moving to the U.K. or other parts of Europe is not as attractive for Eastern Europe’s skilled engineering talent as it was.

Meanwhile, Tero Ojanpera, Nokia’s CTO, suggested it was very unlikely that a court in the U.S. would grant an injunction if you were negotiating in good faith.” Ojanpera said that when you standardize, you contribute your patents and you actually commit to the FRAND [fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory] principle meaning you actually are not entitled to seek an injunction, and this is what Qualcomm did. They said that they would commit to license on this basis, basically saying to the industry that we are not going to come afterwards to you and try and get an injunction.”

For this, and other reasons, Ojanpera believes Nokia is on strong ground to resist any case from Qualcomm.

The roots of this case, and some of the pending litigation between the companies, go back to the mid-1990s, as GSM, the largely European mobile phone technology was beginning to take off. It soon became apparent that GSM would not be able to cope with the data rates required in the next generation of cellular telephony, and that CDMA based technology would be needed. This caused some consternation as it became apparent that Qualcomm was the chief architect of CDMA and owned significant chunks of the essential IPR for which vendors would have to pay royalty rates of about 5 percent of the wholesale price of each handset.

By 2001 almost every major handset maker had signed a licensing deal with Qualcomm which typically involved the 5 percent royalty rate. Nokia was one of the last to succumb. It signed an extension to a 1992 agreement in July 2001 set to last until April 2007.

While posturing is frequently done as part of negotiations ahead of a last minute agreement on this occasion we expect bitter recriminations from both sides come April 9, followed by more work for both companies' law departments.
