I have been working at InterDigital

Pros

a very relaxed pace of work, good base salaries, good bonus and compensation, freindly atmosphere, job stability, very good work- life balance

Cons

insufficeint technical challenge, poor middle management who does not care about proffesional and carrer growth, most people are near retirement- very few young and dynamic people. Dfifficult to change groups- easy to be stuck in a rut

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reduce the fat!. This is a top heavy organisation. Add more young engineers. Make promotions more uniform. Allow people to change groups

No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Most co-workers are great; a few are dead weight.
    Reasonable pay
    Flexible working arrangements (although this is getting more restrictive now)
    First-level management mostly cares about their people (that's changing too)

    Cons

    Poor work-life balance (company doesn't care if it works you to death)
    Upper management has no regard or respect from employees
    Typical political correctness from HR, but it's all a smoke-screen to hide lack of employee regard
    Poor employee morale due to management practices
    Declining level of benefits, at ever higher prices
    Company is not an innovator; just follows the market and focus is on low price, not quality

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that the company's success is due to the hard work and creativity of your employees, NOT your tired and worn-out strategies and me-too policies. If you want the company to turn around, stop focusing solely on costs and start treating your people like the professionals they are; support them and encourage innovation and create an environment where the morale can improve

    Pros

    - Stimulating atmosphere for the technically minded (engineers)
     - Get to interact and work with really smart people (company employs several ph.ds)
     - Very diverse employee set
     - Management very open to adopt innovations suggested by engineers

    Cons

    - Company has only single source of revenue (patent licensing)
        - should diverge into product development too
     - How about cabins for all employees instead of cubicles for just engineers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Open a company location in San Jose and San Diego, where there are lots of engineers
       (company locations are actually kind of "remote" from engineering talent)
