    I have been working at InterDigital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Profit-sharing, Annual bonus, opportunity to work with latest wireless technologies

    Cons

    Lack of vision; This company is big into patents and legal so Engineers are treated as second class citizens.

    Advice to Management

    look at long term goals rather than keep changing your strategies every short while. This will create a lot of distraction in the work place and results in a poor efficiency from the Engineers.

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