    Pros

    One of the pros with InterDigital is the opportunity that people get to work on latest technologies. There is lot of freedom to move from one area of work to another within the company.

    Cons

    There is no concept of work-life balance for people working in the product teams. Working for 6 days a week with really long hours each day is quite common. These crunch times lasted up to one to two years instead of a few weeks/months which is the norm in many technology companies.

    Advice to Management

    InterDigital started product development, hired a team and laid of people and repeated this process three times in the last 9 years. It should put more thought into what it wants to do in the product space before actually hiring the people and bring in people with product experience into the exec team. It is completely reliant on patents that are either silly or are good but about to expire for all the revenue and this can not be the long term plan of the company.
