    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Rovi.


    Normal flow initially, Sr. Recruiter ended up being unprofessional in the end (in my view). I state this because both Rovi and I invested our time and energy in the due diligence process and in my view I had everything and more to offer. The problem was compensation, they had no clue what they needed for the role, and in my process I perhaps gave them guidance on what it would take for Rovi to bring on great caliber of people.
