Consultation business. Work is infrequent but lucrative.

Consult for top tier companies. Mergers and acquisitions, general consulting and special projects. Work is infrequent but can be lucrative if available in your speciallized area.

Great company, occasionally get interest from clients. Very part term

From time to time someone needs specialized help that i'm qualified to help with, probably only about 5 hours a quarter. However, i'm compensated extremely well for this time. It's very low pressure when deciding whether to take a project or not.

Served as a Consultant

Was a great experience for me to connect with those who needed my IP. The only negative was that I did receive some requests for jobs that were outside of my scope of expertise.

Not enough to comment

Not enough experience with them to comment. I reserve judgement until I've received more work from them. It would be imprudent to comment before then.
