Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Rovi full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great pay and benefits with bonuses, Excellent office culture, Budget for social events. Good group of engineers but bad executive management.

Cons

Too many aqcuisitions leading to layoffs. Unclear product direction. New CEO has not improved things evident in stock hit. Lots of restructuring going on. Outsourcing overseas.

    Disapproves of CEO

    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 Management

    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
