Former Employee - Senior Staff Engineer

I worked at InterDigital

Pros

Most co-workers are great; a few are dead weight.
Reasonable pay
Flexible working arrangements (although this is getting more restrictive now)
First-level management mostly cares about their people (that's changing too)

Cons

Poor work-life balance (company doesn't care if it works you to death)
Upper management has no regard or respect from employees
Typical political correctness from HR, but it's all a smoke-screen to hide lack of employee regard
Poor employee morale due to management practices
Declining level of benefits, at ever higher prices
Company is not an innovator; just follows the market and focus is on low price, not quality

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Realize that the company's success is due to the hard work and creativity of your employees, NOT your tired and worn-out strategies and me-too policies. If you want the company to turn around, stop focusing solely on costs and start treating your people like the professionals they are; support them and encourage innovation and create an environment where the morale can improve

    Pros

    Small, friendly, people know the stuff well

    Cons

    Not enough brand name power compare to Nokia, Ecricsson.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    bring more interns and get them have a full view of the company instead of just the sector they are working on. Too specialized for a student.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at InterDigital

    Pros

    - Stimulating atmosphere for the technically minded (engineers)
     - Get to interact and work with really smart people (company employs several ph.ds)
     - Very diverse employee set
     - Management very open to adopt innovations suggested by engineers

    Cons

    - Company has only single source of revenue (patent licensing)
        - should diverge into product development too
     - How about cabins for all employees instead of cubicles for just engineers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Open a company location in San Jose and San Diego, where there are lots of engineers
       (company locations are actually kind of "remote" from engineering talent)
