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

Pros

The pay and benefits are great, people are generally nice and keep to themselves, and the work hours are sensible. If you're looking for a decent place to work, this is it.

Cons

The upper management, the CEO in particular, doesn't really understand technology, which locks them in a mindset of patent litigation. While patents have brought the company a lot of money, I don't think it's a sustainable means of survival.

Advice to Management

Get rid of Tom and bring in someone that understands technology.

    I have been working at Rovi full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are great! The health benefits, and time off plans are nice too. Upper management is finally starting to listen to what employees have been saying and feeling about all the changes that the company has gone through in the past few years. They have implemented a real strategy to improve culture, and we're starting to see improvements. Every company has it's challenges. I'm happy we have leaders who are recognizing ours, and taking action.

    Cons

    The culture across the company is not aligned. It's different for each office because of so many acquisitions. Companies that were acquired several years ago, still don't want to consider themselves as Rovi. (like I said though...this is improving)

    Advice to Management

    Respect all roles, regardless of thier title (ie; Sr., Manager, VP, EVP). Every job here plays an important role in the everyday success of the company.
