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

Pros

Working here is really a pleasant experience . There is a balance of work and life in TiVo. Some of the engineers are really awesome and you can learn a lot from them. The fun activities are really nice. You can bring your family and show the culture of TiVo. The directors and VP are dedicated to take company to further levels. It is no longer a "Just" DVR company. They have added many features to the product and their strategy of providing "TiVo" technology to other cable companies across the world is also working great.

Cons

- Though company is making many changes in their product. Costly subscription is really bothering. I think no body cares to reduce that. And also the physical size of the DVR, they should seriously consider to make it small and cute.
- No 401K match.

Advice to Management

Please focus on reducing the price and monthly subscription of the product. Few people are not buying the product because of high prices.

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

    Pros

    This was an innovative company, at one time. It should be one of the cool places to work in Silicon Valley. TiVo invented the DVR, now lawsuits pay for easter egg hunt parties.

    Cons

    It is not a fun place to be. The CEO doesn't have any passion for entertainment, or care about the employees. They are expendable. There are too many people doing what--engineering? Why no innovation since 2000?

    Stay far, far away from this mess.

    Advice to Management

    The Board should look carefully at restricting the CEO's participation in product development, marketing, and being the public face of TiVo on TV. He is OK at lawsuits, but terrible at setting values and vision for TiVo or inspiring the employees.
