    I worked at Ocean Tomo (More than a year)

    Pros

    None - awful place to work

    Cons

    Too many to mention but cliquish, secretive; bucket loads of management hubris; management blindspots; trivial place to work

    Advice to Management

    Look in the mirror

    Patent Review Process

    Pros

    Company was very professional from the start and you feel you're in good hands.

    Cons

    Ocean Tomo informs you that during the patent review they can use any data provided as they see fit as well as ask any question regarding the technology and say its part of the review process. This is data mining.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a non disclosure statement to patent owners before any information is accepted.

    Pros

    Relatively diverse workforce. Interesting ideas. Nice offices.

    Cons

    Too many ideas--no execution. Very political environment, stay away if you are not related to or know someone very well in the firm. Entire view of the management is on creating valuable IP (they have several patents and many pending) not business value--marketing, sales, and operations are not priorities.

    Advice to Management

    Split up the firm into services, products, auction, and investments. Too many conflicts of interest
