    I worked at Ocean Tomo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Management is well connected within the patent & IP industry allowing for great opportunities with great clients. The Company is well known within Big Law and C-Suites. Personal development is driven by an individual's ambition and desire to advance.

    Cons

    Reasonably decent pay through Associate/Director level, but bonus program is limited and there is virtually zero chance of becoming an equity partner. Therefore, most of the best senior talent leaves in short order.

    Management has a very onerous non-compete at the Director level and up.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to keep your talent by sharing the upside in cash or equity.

    "Generous compensation package but a bit too rigid of an organisational structure"

    Pros

    The company has a great compensation package and their flexible work schedule is second to none which makes work-life balance a priority at the company.

    Cons

    Like many companies they state they have an open-door policy but their organisational structure is quite rigid. This doesn't play well with an ambiguous growth strategy leaving opportunities for advancement vague.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time sharing the company's growth strategy with the employees and perhaps they won't feel like career advancement opportunities are ambiguous.

    Pros

    A company with a number of strong quality professionals. A great place to work if you are interested in chasing the next big thing or being the most innovative company out there. When the company was thriving, the environment was fun and upbeat.

    Cons

    Management seems to base business projections on best case scenario. Management slow to react and accept the changing economic environment. Empty promises made to employees about the future of certain business units. Promotions awarded based on questionable reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously consider the viability of the company's goals and how realistic those goals are in the current market environment. Be straightforward with employees about business profitability.
