Exciting place, uncertain future

  • Work/Life Balance
  • Career Opportunities
  • Comp & Benefits
  • Senior Management
Current Employee - Software Engineer - Contractor in San Jose, CA
Current Employee - Software Engineer - Contractor in San Jose, CA
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Talented people Good work culture - focus on engineering and design integrity Work is a bit demanding but not unreasonable - when you explain the effort estimate, the managers listen. You can work from home city if your work allows it.

Cons

The future looks uncertain - it is not clear whether the company will be able to reclaim leadership. It is not clear what new products/ideas will be game changer. There is a serious space crunch. New people are getting hired but there is too little space to seat everyone comfortably. But probably this is a very short term kind of thing.

    If it's the IT department of Tivo. Just run away!

    Pros

    You get TiVo at a discounted rate. There are few parties over the course of the year, and a blue moon holiday. If you can follow whatever your boss says with no questions asked, you may grow. IT department offers challenges such as tough work environment, and open ended problems to solve. This department doesn't command a whole lot of respect though

    Cons

    Having worked for a very long time in the IT department (not the product engineering), this department clearly is clueless and doesn't have its act together. Employees in this department are overworked and are not respected enough. Managers have "my way or the high way attitude", and brown nose their way up. Talented people get wasted or get fired Budgets are constantly evaluated and people are fired at constant intervals. Not the best place to be if you have other offers in hand

    Advice to Management

    Care for people
