I have been working at Rovi full-time (more than an 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 (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.

    I have been working at Rovi full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Depending on the department, life/work balance can be very good and overall benefits are good. In some cases, the products are interesting and present complex challenges for employees to solve.

    Cons

    Management is sincerely attempting to make Rovi a great company, but doesn't always seem to know how to make it happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget to recognize/reward employees that are working hard on products/services that ensure Rovi is successful on a day-to-day, even though such people are not necessarily working on the new shiny "hot" product.
