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

Pros

Working on interesting problems in a fast changing industry. Who can complain about making TV better for people.

Nice work/life balance. The company really does care about employees.

Customer focused. Much of the company is really focused on the end customer and how to make their experience better.

It is a good group of people to work with.

Cons

Sometimes chaotic. Many different projects going on at the same time. Many different people sometimes involved in relatively simple decisions.

    I have been working at TiVo as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    TiVo was a great place to work. I was very thankful for the team I had while working in QE. The HR team really knows how to put together a solid team.

    Cons

    What's with all the contractors? Why hire only contractors? Very irritating. Also, suddenly laying off a ton of hard working people was kinda sad to see.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring strongly talented and innovative people to the team again so that TiVo can be as badass as it was in 2000
