A Falling Star

Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Santa Clara, CA

I worked at Rovi full-time for more than 5 years

ProsUse to have a lot of nice and smart engineers but now just a few left. It was an excellent company once..

ConsCEO and management team are still making big bucks through incentives even if the company is facing difficult time.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to recruit a new CEO just like HP, Yahoo, etc...

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
