I have been working at Rovi full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The company does a great job in the benefits department including several options for health, dental, and life insurance, 401K plans, and an employee stock program.

Cons

In recent years, Rovi has suffered from a variety of bad product ideas which makes them look like amateurs in the field. In my experience, there was not real innovation happening. Also, it seemed as if Rovi has a history of promoting the wrong people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Perfect the core business and stay focused on it. Stop jumping into "the next bug thing."

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, patents. Chance to work internationally. Good data. Lots of technologies deployed.

    Cons

    East-coast management hyper focused on numbers, terrified of innovative investment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can't be a tech company and operate this way.
