    I worked at InterDigital full-time (More than 10 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.

    Reorgs every year don't work

    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.
