    I have been working at Intellectual Ventures full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    An environment with many very smart people with a diverse range of backgrounds.

    Willingness to listen to the points of view of all employees.

    Very competitive compensation package with good benefits.

    Well positioned to land on my feet even if the company's outlook is uncertain.

    Interesting work with an intriguing business model.

    Senior management appears to know about the significant problems facing the company and are taking the right steps to rectify them.

    Cons

    Many layoffs this year with a big round in August following earlier job cuts on February.

    A cost-cutting mentality that has set in damaging our ability to convince partners of our viability.

    A sometimes deserved bad reputation as a patent troll.

    An inability to find a way to monetize assets that doesn't involve suing or threatening to sue people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a big gap between how it seems Intellectual Ventures wants to be perceived--as a global leader in innovation capable of solving the world's most difficult problems by putting together teams of the smartest people on the planet--and how Intellectual Ventures is actually perceived--as a bullying patent troll. This image problem needs to be rectified soon if the company is to survive because unless potential partners believe in the positive image of Intellectual Ventures, the company won't be able to do the deals needed to build a better image. A Catch-22 that senior management needs to find a way around soon. IV is sitting on a vast trove of intellectual property--one of the largest portfolios of patents in the country. That is IV's strength but my advice to senior management would be to sit down and look for ways to monetize those assets in a positive way that will build a good reputation--as opposed to a negative way (lawsuits) that will result in us being the kid on the playground no one wants to play with. I believe that the top management team does understand the problems but my biggest concern is that it may be too little too late--an overreliance on lawsuits since late 2010 has really hurt the firm's reputation. The open question--the crossroads--that the company is facing is whether this can be reversed in time to save the company.
