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

    It is a very challenging environment with a lot of very interesting projects. The technologies you work on are very cutting edge and there is a lot of exposure to patents and standards. You also have many opportunities to contribute to standards and write patents.

    Cons

    The company is very patent oriented and is still unexperienced with product development. Also, the product requirements vary rapidly and this creates more pressure on the employees.

    Advice to Management

    I would tell them to try to get more feedback from the employees. It seems that they could benefit from receiving comments directly from the people who work on standard/products, rather than receiving them from the (lower) management.

    I have been working at InterDigital full-time

    Pros

    - Small mobile tech R&D company
    - World-class engineering staff
    - Performance is rewarded
    - Plenty of room to grow and get promoted
    - Very interesting and challenging work. You won't be bored.

    Cons

    - Management has shifted gears quite a bit over the last 10 years, making the vision of the company murky for employees
    - Compensation is less lucrative over the last few years, being trimmed to be "on par" with industry
