    Company has great market position, but does not favor a service approach

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGood salary and benefits
    Commitment to creating a desirable work space
    Innovative products with a monopoly in its market space
    Tremendous potential for revenue growth

    ConsCulture is very fractured due to the company's non-stop acquisition of new properties. Many "entities" within the company (TV Guide, Allmusic, etc) still maintain independent cultures and processes, and not all are treated equally, with some carrying "favored nation" status. Also, there is virtually no commitment to service, either from a management or financial standpoint. It's as if the company is resting on the laurels of its products.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand that quality service is a key component to the selling and growth process. Build out a professional team with a strong ability support and manage customer satisfaction.

    Macrovision - they buy high and sell low...

    Director (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsSome cool technology and good people

    ConsMacrovision is in the business of acquiring companies and then breaking them apart for key components - this can be a good strategy if you know what you are doing, but I'm not sure they know what they are doing. There tends to be a distinction between early Macrovision employees and new employees from acquired companies - just look at the senior management and you see who stays and who goes. Another challenge is that many of their acquisitions are way upside down in regard to how much they paid versus what they sold them off for - this leaves them with a high debt load and fewer revenue opportunities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEnsure that your chosen strategy doesn't blow up in your faces

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
