No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Rovi full-time

Pros

The Benefits are good and the stock purchase program is nice.

Cons

Management makes decisions without considering the training that the employees may need but the employees are expected to do the work with minimal to no training

Advice to Management

Listen more to what the employees need to do their job, not what management thinks they need to do their job.

    I worked at Rovi full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    benefits good while employed there.

    Cons

    Treated very unfairly upon layoff/downsizing. Very bad and rude to former employees. No compensation and denial of stated benefits. Direction is unknown and important projects are cut without notice. There are many changes, no sense of direction. Seems to have acquire too much and now doesn't know what to do with it all. Managers are fired for speaking out against upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Allow input and not just assume that the solution is simple.

    I worked at Rovi full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Use to have a lot of nice and smart engineers but now just a few left. It was an excellent company once..

    Cons

    CEO and management team are still making big bucks through incentives even if the company is facing difficult time.

    Advice to Management

    Need to recruit a new CEO just like HP, Yahoo, etc...
