Headed downhill fast

Vice President of Corporate Strategy and Innovation (Current Employee) Santa Clara, CA

ProsRovi once had vision and leadership, and made some bold moves in Digital Entertainment. After Fred Amoroso retired, the company has become a miserable place to work. The new CEO is clueless and has no vision. You can't sue people you want to do business with. You can innovate without building something.

ConsIn the past 10 months, Rovi has lost their CEO, CFO, CIO, EVP of Products and Marketing, EVP of Human Resources, SVP of Consumer Electronics Products, VP of Marketing, VP of BizDev, VP of Strategy, their Chief Evangelist and their stock has gone from $70 to $15. I think that just about covers it.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your people. Stop your closed-door policies. Get a vision. Get a clue. Lead. Dream, and stop looking at your spread-sheets all the time. Tom Carson is qualified. Get somebody new. Your head of sales is a bully and toxic.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
