    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 Management

    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.

    I worked at Rovi full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    benefits are good good company assets trade show marketing and pr team is strong

    Cons

    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
