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    Entrenched in outdated processes, The Board and CEO trying to sell the company.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

    "The experience was not good. I worked in a myopic, entrenched chain of command."

    Pros

    They provide an excellent compensation package.

    Cons

    No recognition or real support from boss for their department ever.
    Very political environment with intimidation and fear prevalent.
    High turnover.
    Questions not encouraged.
    Absolutely no work life balance unless you are an attorney or an executive.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe pay attention to trends in certain departments to see where some major issues might lie.
    More clear communication about pretty much everything instead of in "code".

    Pros

    Easy to score a senior role as a new IT employee these days.
    More openings coming soon as the old staff seeks opportunities elsewhere.
    Some talented people left for now.
    Decent budget, despite the disputable use.

    Cons

    New CIO. IT projects are very questionable. Functional managers technical recommendations are often disregarded. Operational realities are ignored at best, or totally hindered by arbitrary micro-management. As a result, a lot of the former team left.
    Department credibility is low.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the hemorrhage of talents and get a CIO that knows about the realities of IT Operations.
