TiVo is a fairly enjoyable place to work, but slow growth.

Pros

Good working environment, the people are friendly and cooperative. Good supportive management trying to get processes in place. Lot of intelligent software developers with no attitude and always willing to help and educate. The pay is fair.

Cons

There is minimal to no path for career growth and advancement. Like most places these days, too much to do with very little resources. Company upside is limited at the moment. Processes put in place hinder/slow down project advancement.

Advice to Management

Please don't just put processes in place, need to evaluate if the process can be streamlined. Career advancement is limited, there is limited to no career advancement.

    Pros

    Salaries are OK and you can maintain reasonable work-life balance.

    Cons

    Although TiVo is a relatively small company, it has a management chain, bureaucracy and politics that you would expect to see only in big corporations. Management is afraid to make decisions and as a results meetings end with no outcomes because no one had the guts to take a decision. The week after the same people meet to talk about the same topics again with no decisions. I have spent weeks in meetings and discussions that could have been resolved in hours elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Start behaving like management. Make decisions with the team can't, even if it's hard and risky. That's what management is for. Reduce number of meetings, reduce meeting attendees to minimum and start working instead of talking everything to death.

    Pros

    Could be a good place to add to your resume, but then move on to get anything worthwhile!

    Cons

    If you stay long term, you get no benefit to your career. Very little innovation, and won lawsuits are the goal. When law suits are won, too much money is hemorrhaged on useless things. There is also BAD leadership at the upper management level. No transparency from top. All about wasting money on frivolous company events. Not good enough benefits. BEWARE... the list goes on...

    Advice to Management

    Get REAL, give good people good opportunities, or your company and your multi-million dollar salary will disappear!
