Company Culture

Was good until Rovi bought out TiVo

Support from management

Was good until Rovi bought out TiVo

Teamwork

Was good before Rovi bought out TiVo

Freedom to work independently

The challenge is to navigate between inexperienced managers and senior managers. None are any good since Rovi bought out TiVo.

Internal Communication

Good if you are a Rovi employee not a TiVo employee

Gender Equality

Very male dominated

Attitude towards older colleagues

Absolutely the worst company I have ever worked for. Very, very male centric and really wants only moldable young naïve millennials.

Career Development

Ummm. No!

Overall compensation for your work

A little better than Tivo once they got TiVo's pay structure.

Office / Work Environment

Hostile as the day is long

Environmental Friendliness

Well, that's all I can say positive about Rovi/TiVo

Work-Life Balance

The worst but was lauded by current and former employees of TiVo

Company Image

Rovi skated on TiVo;s great reputation. They have no culture of their own. They just buy out companies and leach off of their reputations

Job Security

Look over your back daily and don't trust anyone

Handicapped Accessibility

TiVo made sure that handicap access was available and not Rovi

Workplace Safety

Could do better with the on-site rent-o-cops. They look like they just crawled out of a cave

Challenging Work

Extremely challenging trying to figure out what Rovi is trying to accomplish after their terrible reputation before the buy-out and now.

Inclusive / Diverse

Age is a big problem with Rovi. They LOVE millennials. Kicked a lot of experienced people to the curb.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Start over and hire people who are at least old enough to shave before you promote them or for that matter, hire them.

What I like about the company

It was a great and innovative company with a great culture

What I dislike about the company

Rovi ruined the culture and became a system of bullying and stupidity
