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

Pros

Compensation and benefits are some of the best, with its change to PTO in 2014 is also a big plus. Work life balance is 100% better than previous companies I have worked for in the same role. There are some truly intelligent and innovative people in this Company. I have been around long enough to see this mid size company grapple with it's culture which was much like a startup and individualized start to morph into a much more cohesive and integrated company. Over the last four years with the hiring of Adriane Brown as COO it has proceeded on a steady path of change and maturing that has brought about personnel change of many of the Executive staff across all departments. Within the IT department we have had a complete swap of Managers and CTO which has greatly improved the maturity and experience of those leading. It is nice knowing when you come to work that you have the resources and support of management to affect change. I would suggest this company to a friend.

Cons

Organizational maturity has been slow and painful at times.
Personal accountability has not always been a focus.
Middle management in past have been slow to address inefficiencies and strive for improvement across teams and departments.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to address the hard issues when they arise. Demand collaboration and respect from all employees and call out the ones that fail to strive for the same.

    Pros

    Smart people, interesting problems, leading edge company tackling issues in invention and innovation; very entrepreneurial, with support to try new things; above average compensation

    Cons

    see above - the downside of that is that decision making tends to be distributed, silos are created and exist throughout, people can be arrogant, and there can be a lot of pressure; if this environment is not for you, then you will find it stressful

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide on a few key principles and stick to those - and communicate
