The last thread provided so little info that it really wasn't helpful, except for ego boosting. Let's try again, but with more helpful information. If you're not comfortable with being this honest, please leave blanks or don't participate.

      I'm really good at what I do. I had a major patent as an SDE 2 and was promoted shortly after. I'm also still working on the same team that I interned with 6 years ago.

      What do you mean by you had a major patent? Was it something you did personally (off hours), something did personally (company time), or something you and your team did?

      I've wondered how patents typically work with companies. I know some want to own everything you do, even in your off time, while others aren't so strict.

      Off time with company resources = company (there laptop, network, etc)... if it's entirely personal then you should own it
