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

Pros

- Above average pay.
- Great medical benefit
- Good 401K match.
- Flexible work hours.

Cons

- Incompetent C-level executives. CEO and CFO do not have any prior experience as C-Level executives.
- No future plan or vision or product.
- Constant re-org, rather than focusing on actual "management"
- Strong nepotism exists in upper level management

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Please check Glassdoor and see how your employees feel about company's direction and future.
- I honestly do not understand why board is not willing to replace Tom to someone else.

    I have been working at Rovi full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are exceptional. The company offers time flexibility and encourages life and work balance. They hire very talented and committed people, making the work environment extraordinarily pleasant.

    Cons

    There are few wrings on the career ladder in most departments. The company is very compartmentalized; each team deals with its issues and company policies differently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on caring for employees’ satisfaction and follow thru with the new improvements.

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

    Pros

    Good compensation (salary, stock purchase program, affordable healthcare), nice office space (plenty of room :-)). Good people to work with. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Unclear product roadmap. Unclear vision for company. Exodus of employees. Frequent reorgs. Management doesn't appear to care -- when was the last time an EVP made it to the 2nd floor of the Burbank office and said "hello" to the little people? Low employee morale. Project staffing frequently changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Correct the above problems.
