    Pros

    The best company I ever worked for. Great place, lots of fun, lots of opportunities to advance! Inspiring projects! Great management! The greatest coworkers!

    Cons

    Multiple acquisitions and strategy changes as the consequence. Company was getting worse with each acquisition, but still unique environment and culture.

    Advice to Management

    DivX culture used to be amazing! It looks like culture interviews used to be a smart strategy! Keep people inspired as it used to be!

    Product Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at DivX (San Diego, CA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Screening call / Call with Hiring Manager / Face-to-Face with 5 members of the teams / offer.

    The issue was that I never received the offer, because the company reneged on it days before the start-date. Horrible company, horrible people who do not know what they are doing. It's no wonder why Rovi is selling them after a year...

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Easy and really unprofessional. Not in a good way
