Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Rovi full-time (More than a year)

Pros

1) Work/Life Balance
2) Benefits
3) Some smart colleagues

Cons

1) Company doesn't know how to make innovative products
2) Always relies on patents to market their products. Patents are junk and good for nothing
3) The company revamped twice in period of 2 years, no proper goal/strategy

Advice to Management

Management is off-shoring engineering to China/Russia. This is further gonna degrade quality of already half baked products. The whole idea of off-shoring is gonna fail. Please wake up before you realise that
