    Great projects if your are not amongst unfortunate few
    Managers are very sharp and were involved in designing, coding activities as well
    Great flexibility in terms of working hours and Work from home policy

    A bit bureaucracy creeped in after being merged with Tivo
    Focus shifting from innovation and quality to more process oriented
    HR practices, especially hiring , going for a toss

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

    Pros

    1. Full responsibility given for a project -> helps in understanding management of people, time ; makes you fully independent asset to the company.
    2. Managers are knowledgeable; a lot could be learnt from them.
    3. Thinking about new solutions to previous problems which reduces the amount of time put in maintenance or just does it very efficiently such that it reduces cost is highly encouraged.
    4. Free Food which is very tasty.

    Cons

    1. Sometimes work could get boring, because you always don't get kaju curry, sometimes to get that you have to eat dal also.

    Advice to Management

    1. Innovative thinking is lacking in company culture. This should be highly encouraged.

    I worked at Rovi full-time

    Pros

    The company has great employee benefits, which is the only reason the employees continue to work there.

    Cons

    The upper management should treat the employees with respect, this is one of the causes of many people quitting the company. Most people are pushed around and are not allowed to voice their opinions.The only non engineering team in the company is treated like they have no lives outside the office. Are forced to do what the upper management wants, whether this demand is reasonable or not. The salary hike was terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Taking into account the cons that have been mentioned above, the management should do something about the things mentioned.
