    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Santa Clara, CA

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

    Pros

    Was a good company once..

    Cons

    Lost direction, lost vision, behind trend - after new CEO, Tom Carson.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please read books and newspaper, be preemptive with trend, invest more on new technology and research for the future. Stop simply dumping and cutting employees down to make investors happy.

    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Burbank, CA
    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Burbank, CA

    I have been working at Rovi full-time (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
