    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Burbank, CA

    I have been working at Rovi full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1) Work/Life Balance
    2) Benefits
    3) Some smart colleagues

    Cons

    1) Company doesn't know how to make innovative products
    2) Always relies on patents to market their products. Patents are junk and good for nothing
    3) The company revamped twice in period of 2 years, no proper goal/strategy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is off-shoring engineering to China/Russia. This is further gonna degrade quality of already half baked products. The whole idea of off-shoring is gonna fail. Please wake up before you realise that

    I worked at Rovi full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great Benefits, clear direction, great people to work with. Wonderful culture and great environment.

    Cons

    Profitable divisions, yet layoffs in those divisions. Too many acquisitions = poor morale. Loosing resources yet you are expected to succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Product management needs help badly.
