    I worked at TiVo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work environment, exciting products, smart people.
    Opportunities to learn new skills and to participate in alpha/beta testing.
    Good work/home balance, flexibility re: schedule and telecommuting.
    Employees treated with trust and respect - no micro-management, at least in my experience.

    Cons

    I fear that management is not investing enough towards TiVo's future and is not open to innovative ideas.
    Marketing effort seems half-hearted.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in advertising! TiVo has great products but people still ask "Is TiVo still around?"
