    Advice to Management

    Dear Mr. Carson,

    As you openly invited all employee's to do during an "All Hands" call a while ago I decided that I really *did* hate working at Rovi that much and have now left. Your comment was made in response to a rather critical review that had been posted here on Glassdoor.

    Having been an employee for many years and a willing and active participant in the culture of the company I am saddened to see that, under your leadership, morale and company culture is at an all-time low. Any employee forum that existed has been done away with (Ask an Exec, Employees Advisory Council etc.). It has been made clear that employees are not welcome to challenge or ask questions about the company that they are dedicating 5 days a week of their lives to.

    Bureaucracy and red tape are choking the establishment and making your employees less and less in love with their jobs. Feedback from teams on products, processes and working conditions is almost universally ignored by the upper management.

    You have a wealth of talented staff that are doing excellent jobs. The company goals are so narrowly focused on meeting impossibly high targets each quarter that there is very little opportunity to dedicate time to providing a high-quality product and experience for customers or employees alike.

    Rovi has slowly turned into the kind of cold autocracy that makes employees dread turning up each day at 9am. This is reflected in the number of long-serving employees that have left the company in the past 2 years.

    Yours Faithfully,

    A Rovi Survivor
