I have been working at TiVo

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Trying to put the 'fun' in dysfunctional.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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