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

Pros

Working on interesting problems in a fast changing industry. Who can complain about making TV better for people.

Nice work/life balance. The company really does care about employees.

Customer focused. Much of the company is really focused on the end customer and how to make their experience better.

It is a good group of people to work with.

Cons

Sometimes chaotic. Many different projects going on at the same time. Many different people sometimes involved in relatively simple decisions.

    I have been working at TiVo as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    TiVo was a great place to work. I was very thankful for the team I had while working in QE. The HR team really knows how to put together a solid team.

    Cons

    What's with all the contractors? Why hire only contractors? Very irritating. Also, suddenly laying off a ton of hard working people was kinda sad to see.

    Advice to Management

    Bring strongly talented and innovative people to the team again so that TiVo can be as badass as it was in 2000

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

    Pros

    I didn't know why some of the people here say negative about this company like it is going down, out dated software, top management has no-focus etc. Probably they don't have complete picture of the company business or they got laid-off so out of frustration they are saying something rubbish.

    Company has progressed so much in past several years. Some of the progresses are given below.

    1) TiVo launched Multi-room solution with TiVo Mini and TiVo stream. And it also has both iOS and Andriod Apps to watch shows on your smart phone / tablets.

    2) It launched TiVo Roamio which has been called as "Holy grail of set-top-boxes" and got highest positive reviews from end users.

    3) TiVo experience is expanded to international markets. Virgin Media in UK launched 1.7 million TiVo boxes in market. ONO also launched thousands of TiVo boxes in Spain.

    4) TiVo software now powered with IPTV capability. Com Hem is releasing TiVo boxes with both QAM and IPTV support in Sweden markets. TiVo is targeting many other international markets.

    5) They have created a new VP position for innovation and on his direction TiVo prototyped first nPVR service. This is expected to launch soon.

    6) TiVo is first DVR which is bringing "true" TV-Everywhere service by providing out of the home watching experience to end users on their phones/tablets with out any additional hardware support.

    Being part of the company and if you are not aware of these advances then you are a blind person.

    Cons

    It used to have Bonuses. Now they removed.
    For that size of the company, the salary paid to CEO is too much.

    Advice to Management

    No Advice. Keep doing what you have been doing and take the company to next level.
