For those who went from private practice to in-house, what are some questions you wish you asked during interviews? I'm coming from a large regional firm, 9 YOE as a patent attorney, just had a first interview for a Senior IP counsel position at a profitable R+D company. Just wondering what I should be looking for or asking as far as red flags, because things seem really good so far.

How is the budget set for portfolio mgmt (ie who owns it- legal v biz)? Will you be assigned particular product categories? How does the IP team stay close enough to the biz to ensure we can underage and drive strategy (are you on Director or Vp staff? Attend town halls? Will you do lab/plant visits?)?

I’m an Inside sales rep and when I transferred into a different department for similar role, I did it for commission purposes and in hopes of increase salary. I wanted to apply for ISR II but was told everyone must start off as a level I (even though I was an ISR 1 for almost two years). After I accepted the new role, a month later a rep on my previous team (who was hired 6 months after me) was hired on as a level two. I was disappointed because I felt lied to but also noticed (Cont in comments)
