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Entrenched in outdated processes, The Board and CEO trying to sell the company.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

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.

    Pros

    Good work environment,
    open research environment

    Cons

    R&D not applicable that much to product development
    The company is trying to invest in many small projects and this make it not specialized in any thing in particular

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unclear vision for most of the employers on where the company is heading and its future. Management should make this message clear.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
