    Pros

    InterDigital was a great place to work. My boss was excellent. Everything was state of the art.

    Cons

    Unfortunately I came in when the person who was training me was having some issues so I had a lot of things to clean up in the process of learning. No gripe against the company just not and ideal situation.

    Best company to work with. No one is peeping into your work. Managers are always ready to hear you help you, and always friendly. I love the way they approach to the project and how close they feel to the project.

    No cons found so far. Best to place to work

    Advice to Management

    I worked at InterDigital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company has a family atmosphere. The compensation is way above average for the area. Good benefits, although those have been declining somewhat. The people I worked with were great - smart, not into politics, made it easy to go to work.

    Cons

    Too much uncertainty all the time. Too many layoffs. Management constantly changing strategy (like usual, even though they put in a new team). The lawyers rule everything. The place is a law firm. Lawyers looked down on engineering. If you're an engineer, don't bother applying unless you don't mind selling your soul. HR is the worst I've ever seen. Constant mistakes. Document EVERYTHING.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a path and stay on it.

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

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits coupled with a good work life balance. The engineering staff is highly skilled and includes some brilliant people.

    Cons

    Layoffs and other RIFs are too common - occurring roughly every 2 to 3 years. InterDigital moves from one technology to the next every few years and in doing so, replaces existing workers with new hires who are up to speed on the new areas.

    Advice to Management

    Stick with your technology programs for longer periods instead of pulling the plug prematurely. Give greater say in executive decisions to technical experts instead of relying on patent lawyers.
