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

Pros

Excellent pay and benefits combined with a work environment in which it is easy to attain a good work/life balance. The engineering workforce is very talented and the company is involved in some exciting wireless R&D projects.

Cons

Job security is poor - layoffs occur every frequently because the company hires people for new projects which are then abandoned within 2-3 years. Middle managers are more concerned with maintaining their place in the food chain rather than doing what's good for the company as a whole.

Advice to Management

A thorough housecleaning is in order. The CEO and board of directors need to be replaced with people who actually understand the wireless industry.

    I worked at InterDigital full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.


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

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at InterDigital full-time (More than 3 years)

    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    Entrenched in outdated processes, The Board and CEO trying to sell the company.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 Management

    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.
