    Pros

    Work with some of the best and brightest in the industry. Very challenging but performance is recognized and appreciated. Excellent compensation and benefits. If you are good at what you do you can build a great career at InterDigital.

    Cons

    The company changes it's business model radically from time to time, in response to changes in the industry. It can be difficult to keep up. It's a small R&D company so you must work hard to stay in the game. (not really a con, unless you're ok with mediocrity)

    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 Management

    - 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)

    Pros

    Profit-sharing, Annual bonus, opportunity to work with latest wireless technologies

    Cons

    Lack of vision; This company is big into patents and legal so Engineers are treated as second class citizens.

    Advice to Management

    look at long term goals rather than keep changing your strategies every short while. This will create a lot of distraction in the work place and results in a poor efficiency from the Engineers.
