    Pros

    Benefits are phenomenal, location is great. New product-centric business units run like up-beat startups with purpose. New CEO seems to have a good perspective on transitioning to a business services model.

    Cons

    Kind of a downer to work for a licensing company that makes money primarily by patent infringement lawsuits. Patent troll culture is kind of ingrained in the middle management. Cost-cutting inevitably creates a "get out while you can" environment until the transition to a new business model turns the corner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Flatten the structure by a level. Flush the management structure to bring in product-centric folks to match the new business model. Change the company name, not just the logo.
