Benefits

TiVo offers highly competitive benefits. We value hard work and do everything in our power to motivate, encourage and reward our employees. Benefits and perks are a key part of the total compensation package.

Health & Wellness

Rest assured that you and your family’s medical, dental and vision needs will be in good hands; we offer a rich health and wellness package. Our medical flex spending and dependent care spending accounts allow you to set aside pre-tax dollars for out-of-pocket medical and dependent care expenses. We have a wildly popular wellness program, where employees can earn cash incentives for tracking wellness-related challenges. If you’re a fitness buff, our generous health club reimbursement plan will help pay for gym memberships, personal trainers and more.

Incentives & Rewards

TiVo offers competitive salaries, plus reward and incentive plans, including equity and an annual bonus. Our matching 401(k) program helps employees plan for retirement, while our Employee Stock Purchase Plan allows team members the opportunity to purchase TiVo stock at a discount. For transit riders, we also offer a commuter benefit.

Rest & Relaxation

We know how important it is to maintain a work-life balance, so our vacation, personal/ sick time policy is generous and flexible. Need to step away from your desk to recharge? Some of our facilities offer on-site gyms and/or game rooms.

Communities & Charities

We believe in and encourage giving back. TiVo works closely with local charities in our various locations to provide employees opportunities to participate in company-sponsored charitable events. In fact, we provide all full-time employees two paid days per year to do community service, and have a matching gift program for charitable donations.

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at TiVo (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter and interviewed by several very nice people. The process was a bit all over the place and took forever. I was even left sitting in a room for 40 minutes waiting, and was never told the interview process was over. The offer came through with a 48hr time limit and there was little room for countering. HR also misinformed me on going into the negative on vacation, which I found out later was disallowed. Other red flag was that my potential boss spent the entire interview talking about himself and never really asked me anything.
