Pros

It is a fun, startup like atmosphere, yet you can balance life and work. There is never a dull moment.

TiVo faces a lot of risks as a company with new internet based services, cord cutting, and inability to protect their market in core DVR technologies.

Advice to Management

Don't be afraid to take bold steps - reinvent a better TV experience again

    Current Employee - Software Engineer - Contractor in San Jose, CA
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Talented people
    Good work culture - focus on engineering and design integrity
    Work is a bit demanding but not unreasonable - when you explain the effort estimate, the managers listen.
    You can work from home city if your work allows it.

    Cons

    The future looks uncertain - it is not clear whether the company will be able to reclaim leadership. It is not clear what new products/ideas will be game changer.
    There is a serious space crunch. New people are getting hired but there is too little space to seat everyone comfortably. But probably this is a very short term kind of thing.
