Pros

Salary is higher than average.
Business model is new. Leader in the niche.
Very smart people around.
Great opportunity in the market.
Free snacks, drinks.

Cons

Top managements are not very clear about the new business model in 5 years. Need a lot of try and fail cycle to figure out. Process is weak. But they are working to build it.
Expanding quickly in recent two years. Not sure if the business can sustain in the near future.
A lot of jobs are self-initiated. Do your best work.

Advice to Management

Try to map out some clearer future for the company. Besides the fundings, make support and function team more efficient in collaboration and business process.

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

    Pros

    Amazing vision, and promise.
    I have met and will remain friends with some great people.

    Cons

    Where to begin... It starts with the small things such as the little label of the lift reminding you every day that the "Management Team" are on the fifth floor. A floor they never leave and you will never see. It ends with a culture that is broken and divided by person, team and organization.

    Advice to Management

    The founders started with a great vision - may be worth reviewing...


  2. "Great environment, worked with an amazing group of people."

    I worked at Intellectual Ventures as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very laid back environment, flexible. Worked in an office that was similar to a start up. Everyone is really friendly and have friendships outside the office. Weekly seminars, book groups and meetings keeps everyone updated with what's happening in different parts of the company.

    Cons

    Loose structure, interns receive limited guidance.
