No opinion of CEO

Pros

It is a fun, startup like atmosphere, yet you can balance life and work. There is never a dull moment.

Cons

TiVo faces a lot of risks as a company with new internet based services, cord cutting, and inability to protect their market in core DVR technologies.

Advice to Management

Don't be afraid to take bold steps - reinvent a better TV experience again

    Trying to put the 'fun' in dysfunctional.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    If you're a contractor looking for a steady gig, this is low-hanging fruit. If you're an long-term TiVo employee who loves rescuing failing projects, you've got a job for life.

    Cons

    Picture yourself working on N infinitely complex death-march projects concurrently, each one requiring N-1/Nths of your time, none of them ever ship, and you get the blame.

    Advice to Management

    If you often seem clueless as to how to consistently deliver quality software on time, please consider that might be true.

    Pros

    Everyone gets a Tivo and a TV at their workspace

    Most of the QA workers there are only Contractors and there for only a short amount of time

    Advice to Management

    Should offer to keep contractors on board
