  5. Great contractor experience

    Former Contractor - Anonymous Contractor

    I worked at InterDigital as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Working as a consultant on a 7-month, part-time project, I was treated with a great deal of kindness, patience, and understanding as my father became ill and eventually passed away during the first two months of the engagement. I was also very impressed with the level of talent and professionalism across the staff.

    Cons

    I can't really think of any glaring cons. I would, though, like to see the company leverage its vocational power (e.g., financial success, staff talents, expertise, etc.) to make an impact on society that goes beyond developing important network technologies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it a priority to determine if there's a higher purpose for your business than you currently realize and, if so, to get about honoring it.

    Former Employee - Management in King of Prussia, PA

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

    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)

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    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)
