I have been working at InterDigital

Pros

It is small company. So the environment is very competitive. Engineers are one of the smartest engineers. Benefits given to engineer are sometimes are good. Every innovation is paid a lot for. Contributions are valued a lot. you can be a large fish in small pond very fast. Diverse group of people to work with.

Cons

Senior management lacks direction. In fact entire upper management team lacks direction.
Number of meetings are way high. Which makes is less productive space.
All Allhands meetings presentation, more-or-less look "identical"

Hiring HR Stinks. Upper management doesn't seem to realize that they miss a lot of good ppl who want to work with this company because of the hiring manager.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They need to clean up themselves. a lot of junk folks. Remove some patent hungry folks.

    I worked at InterDigital full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits coupled with a good work life balance. The engineering staff is highly skilled and includes some brilliant people.

    Cons

    Layoffs and other RIFs are too common - occurring roughly every 2 to 3 years. InterDigital moves from one technology to the next every few years and in doing so, replaces existing workers with new hires who are up to speed on the new areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick with your technology programs for longer periods instead of pulling the plug prematurely. Give greater say in executive decisions to technical experts instead of relying on patent lawyers.
