Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Rovi full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

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

Cons

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

Advice to Management

Need to recruit a new CEO just like HP, Yahoo, etc...
