What are hidden benefits to applying for a patent?

I have many unusual ideas of unique approaches to complex problems which relate to my line of work. Writing a patent seems like a good way to get them on paper and an interesting way to boost my competitive profile. I do not have the legal know-how or resources to finance legal action, nor do I plan/care/want to. Aside from helping me outline my idea in precision and detail, what other "hidden" advantages are there to patent application?
