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

Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Benefits package, good people. Decent lifestyle/work balance

    Cons

    Having worked at Rovi for more than a decade, I've seen enough changes to last a lifetime (and these have occurred at an alarming rate over the last two years). Unfortunately, few have resulted in positive change. The current CEO is inept and given how the stock continues to tumble, how he desperately sells off property to compensate for those losses, and his insincere,m deceitful manner of dealing with employees--not to mention the nepotism he shows toward all of his Radnor cronies who manage the same way he does (bottom line only please, we only care about the stock price (how's that working for you?)--it's amazing he keeps his position. Shockingly, the board hasn't shown him the door yet. Each quarter when the stock falls again, and earnings are not met, there is a reorganization, layoffs and a "realignment" of corporate strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Get a vision from someone who is actually informed about what's happening in tech and digital discovery. Commit more resources to search and data solutions rather than milking them to feed your dwindling cash. Content is where the future is; Find a way for your fine software engineers to work more directly with data. Former CEO Fred Amoroso, a dynamic economically intelligent, and visionary man understood this--and his people--completely. Trying to run a corporation merely from a sales viewpoint with a bunch homeboy yes men doing your bidding is a losing strategy.
