Lab Manager & Quality Assurance Analyst - RES (Former Employee), Radnor, PA – May 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, PA – March 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.
Excellent benefits program and great work enviornment
Client Service Representative (Former Employee), Playa Vista, CA – February 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 – more... 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. – less
Great place to work and learn state of the art technologies
Lead QA Engineer (Former Employee), Bedford, MA – January 13, 2013
Cons: employees should be prepared to work across multiple time zones
• Rovi is a great place to work; there is never a dull moment at any given day. Plenty of opportunities for career advancements. • At this company employees are exposed to new challenges throughout their careers. This is in turn helps employees learn new skills. • Very open and approachable management, all managers treat employees as peers and with – more... respect. • Excellent co-workers make day to day work a pleasure. • Due to company offices spread across the world at times one might feels they have to work day and night, attending conference calls etc. • The work place environment, freedom to make decisions allows a person to achieve their best. – less
