    I have been working at Rovi full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    - enough funds to use unified tools over different groups
    - somewhat career potential
    - budget for social activities and events
    - nice people on the daily level

    Cons

    - bureaucratic process is way to long
    - US focused decisions - difficult for other locations to get a voice
    - US focused culture - ignoring other locations laws, cultural specifics, ...
    - Senior Management does not fulfill their own promises
    - Upstream reports have to be accurate and written, downstream are vague and verbal - the higher the management the less accountable a statement becomes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to have motivated and reliable employees be an idol to that, fulfill your promises, give clear written instructions, do not change every 6 month strategy, listen to employees and managers from all levels and all over the world, they are on the frontline and know what can work and what not. The world ends not at the borders of the US, there are countries where you first trust your employees.

    Politics and friendship with management team is valued above all else for advancement; results are ignored
    Much of the management team lacks vision or understanding of the market
    New products are conceived, but then underfunded and abandoned before they have a chance
    Management repeatedly ignores market trends; ie - social, mobile
    Product marketing leadership team is weak and unorganized
    Company goes out of it's way to avoid paying sales team commissions
    Patent troll strategy, that destroys all chances for strategic long term customer relationships
