Recently hired Patent Agent and wanted to know if I am being fairly compensated and utilized. Training lasted a couple days where I immediately got assigned to draft +2 patent applications and +1 office action responses each week. Have no experience with 3D modeling programs so drawing diagrams and figures take a long time too. TOC < 80k and no annual bonus.

Do you have any experience as an agent or brand new?

Sounds about right for a small firm, depending on region - a bit high if you aren't a JD. The first year or so for a new attorney or agent is basically to see what you can do, and if you provide value, you can negotiate for a raise.
