Pros

Creative work environment. You are encouraged to do research and produce your own ideas. Competitive salary and benefits. Staff is mostly friendly.

Cons

You have to work in suburbs. Even though these days almost all the tech companies located in the suburbs. But if you are single person who would like to have a life outside of the work, it is very difficult to have a balanced life.

    Patent or Perish!

    I worked at InterDigital full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay and bonuses well above industry average
    Work on cutting-edge wireless
    Job security for authors/co-authors of numerous patent applications
    Mostly good people to work with
    Relaxed working environment (typically no product deadlines)

    Cons

    Hard to advance past Member Technical Staff for engineers
    Has a reputation as a patent troll
    Limited transparency of executive decision making down to employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to drive the business through engineering innovation instead of purely patent driven decisions. Good engineering will always create value in some form.

  2.  

    Experience not great overall. Coworkers were great to work with.

    Pros

    Compensation is on par with industry for engineers and IT, however the KOP location is rather remote from any activities or a city.

    Cons

    Entrenched in outdated processes, The Board and CEO trying to sell the company. Department projects and goals rarely met which affected your bonus - when they didn't cut it at the year's end. No yearly bonus if you leave before 12-31. KOP location is rather remote and all major access roads have heavy traffic during peak times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to sell the company so The Board and CEO can have a payday, and get back to letting the engineers be innovative. Prorate bonuses when someone leaves of their own accord.
