    I have been working at Rovi full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - enough funds to use unified tools over different groups
    - somewhat career potential
    - budget for social activities and events
    - nice people on the daily level

    Cons

    - bureaucratic process is way to long
    - US focused decisions - difficult for other locations to get a voice
    - US focused culture - ignoring other locations laws, cultural specifics, ...
    - Senior Management does not fulfill their own promises
    - Upstream reports have to be accurate and written, downstream are vague and verbal - the higher the management the less accountable a statement becomes

    Advice to Management

    If you want to have motivated and reliable employees be an idol to that, fulfill your promises, give clear written instructions, do not change every 6 month strategy, listen to employees and managers from all levels and all over the world, they are on the frontline and know what can work and what not. The world ends not at the borders of the US, there are countries where you first trust your employees.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    - Good salary.
    - Good benefit (medical / dental / vision / 401k match)
    - Very flexible work hours.

    Cons

    - With new CEO (Tom Carson), company is now going downhill really fast. No direction, no vision, stock price plunges. With Fred, company used to be a better place to work, and used to have some vision for the future.

    Advice to Management

    -Listen to your employees.
