      Negative Outlook
      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at InterDigital full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Stable paycheck. Good place for long term employees to cruise and take credit for the work of younger hard working staff

      Cons

      This place is a litigation firm run by Philly lawyers trying to cover itself up as an Engineering organization. PR department did a nice job pumping up the technology the company does not have. Nevertheless terrible reputation and very hard to get a job elsewhere afterwards. All the Innovators have left the company. Whatever left is second Tier fast sliding to third Tier. Vicious cycle of Hiring/firing and pointless reorgs.

      Advice to Management

      Entire Senior Management is incompetent. CEO picks them up like that because he does not like to be challenged. Board is asleep at the wheel collecting their windfall and does not care. M&A is not the solution to years of mis-management. Serious clean up is necessary. An activist should come in break up or sell this company.
