    Pros

    The management puts a lot of faith in its employees to get things done. This is great if you enjoy an mostly (95%) hands-off management style. Recent grads will find a lot of knowledge from senior personnel and also a lot of resources to try things out. They have a lot of physical infrastructure for building, designing, testing your own ideas. Decent change as a jumping point to other positions outside the company.

    Cons

    That reaming 5% is very micro-managing. The corporate culture is almost entirely "omega" type personalities surrounded by an "alpha" type CEO. The employee turn-over is abysmal, averaging one person every 2-3 months (in a company w/ < 30 employees). The knowledge-transfer to new hires is also quite bad. We spent a lot of time re-inventing the wheel each new project because there were no long-term employees who knew that we'd done something similar 5 years ago. I once found a notebook in some random un-used desk with notes detailing the exact same problem I was working on at the time. I never would have found it if I hadn't gone snooping. There is really no chance for advancement *within* the company.

    Advice to Management

    Your value is not in the patents you hold, but in the skill of your employees to implement those patents. Respect their knowledge and preserve it.
