    I worked at Cardinal Intellectual Property full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy going and fun. Workday goes by quickly. Pretty stress-free, no one breathing down back. This is a job that requires you to actually work, I think a lot of the people who haven't enjoyed working at Cardinal are people looking for a job that pays them to sit there, this isn't that job. Workforce seems generally younger, office crowd is enjoyable to be around. Free wifi for streaming music all day. Burger joint nearby has good food.

    Cons

    Not much to complain about, if you are looking for a gig that is going to change the world, this place probably isn't for you.

    I worked at Cardinal Intellectual Property part-time

    Pros

    Parking in building. Right in downtown Evanston. 4 weeks vacation promised in the 2nd year of employment, although one gets a statement in writing that the company reserves the right to take that benefit away at any point in time.

    Cons

    Out of touch with reality on many levels. Assessments were made and communicated to management, but any sound advice was completely disregarded and ignored. The larger question is of course whether or not patents intrinsically are for the better good or not, which is quite controversial. And it has been for centuries now. If anyone is considering working for Cardinal, be prepared to just collect a pay check and maybe, depending on the department, not have to put in long hours, and maybe get to work from home some or all of the time, and hopefully it is a big enough one.

    Advice to Management

    Probably just dissolve the business or try to find a buyer, if revenues are shrinking. Otherwise... whatever...
