A great place to work, at one time.
Technical Editor/Writer (Former Employee), Ann Arbor, MIFebruary 5, 2015
Pros: work-life balance
Cons: outsourcing, micro-managing
I have had the pleasure of working with a dedicated, intelligent and hard working group of people. Unfortunately, our parent company, ROVI does not value the devotion our group has to our work. Constant micro-managing, layoffs and outsourcing have given a once proud and healthy workplace low morale and has killed the amazing culture we had.

Great Employer...
Field Engineer (Former Employee), Santa Clara, CAFebruary 1, 2015
I have heard of many unsatisfied employees but that is likely due to a cultural shift after a change in CEO. The new leadership worked hard to get the company back on track and it appeared to be working. I worked remotely and traveled frequently.

IT Professional (Former Employee), Radnor, PAJanuary 13, 2015
Pros: benefits were decent, work from home was an option, talented co-workers
Cons: work-life balance was painful, not really involved in the "new stuff" that was implemented in it
80% of my time at the company was enjoyable - talented, fun people to work with on new technologies and interesting projects. However, the last few years were not. IT restructured and tried to define itself as a service component but I was not lucky enough to see the final outcome if it did come to fruition.

Nice company to work for, not much job security.
Mobility Cooridinator (Former Employee), Tulsa, OKJuly 25, 2014
I worked at Rovi in Tulsa, OK from July 2013 to May 2014. I enjoyed my job and my the work environment. They were very flexible on scheduling and days off when I needed them. There was a constant stream of people being let go, forced to quit, or laid off though. This created a lot of workplace gossip and a lot of unknowns.

Good place to work
Lab Manager & Quality Assurance Analyst - RES (Former Employee), Radnor, PAMay 20, 2014
Pros: great benifits and people to work with in an awesome environment.
Cons: one gets sold/laid off when one's superior fails to bill customers correctly.
Rovi was a nice place to work. I would like to go back. Unfortunately, the division I worked for was sold and I was laid off. Their in house software development continues but it remains to be seen what comes of it. I believe Rovi is undergoing some changes and relocation at the moment. My experience there was nice.

Data Operations (Former Employee), Radnor, PAMarch 26, 2014
Job work / life balance is non-existent. Expected to work overtime all the time. Constantly short on staff. Unrealistic expectations. Upper management is detached from reality and their employees. Good benefits, compensation could be much better. Many positions are underpaid.

Client Service Representative (Former Employee), Playa Vista, CAFebruary 8, 2013
Pros: excellent work environment
Cons: job advancement
My day would start from 8:30 AM to 5 PM, Monday to Friday. Being a Rovi employee brought out the best in me. My managers and coworkers were a pleasure to work with and are knowledgeable in both their actual jobs as well as with the mission of the company. The hardest part of the job has to be actually getting there. I live 18 miles away but the commute can take well over an hour. Besides the commute the actual job and environment are all a pleasure. The most enjoyable part about working for Rovi are their incentives for continuing to strive to be a better employee and person. They put together a lot of out of office activities and offer bonuses for producing hard work. The draw back is job security and advancement. I've known several employees that have been with the company for years only to end up leaving because job advancement is scarce.

I had the pleasure of working under great managers. They were really good at giving direction and guidance and their feedback was always constructive and helpful.

I had awesome co-workers who were very helpful and there a really high morale with the group. Even between those that are in different departments there is a strong team bond.
