    I worked at DTS full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Creative folks across all departments. Audio technology that "rocks". Great sound rooms for listening pleasure. Always have the latest Audio/Visual surround sound systems to test. Its great to be in the testing lab with high end Denon, Pioneer, Yamaha, Marantz, you name it, they have it.

    Cons

    Competitive market with the likes of Dolby. Always needing to re-invent to stay fresh in the audio space

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!!!

    Pros

    It's an exciting work environment as we touch just about every consumer-facing device around the world. Success and performance is rewarded, recognized and communicated to the rest of the employees on a regular basis. I've watched a lot of people move to the top of the organization in just a few years--pretty cool to watch. Lastly, this is a company that any employee can walk into the CEO's office and a have a conversation.

    Cons

    In some positions there is worldwide travel requirements so depending on if you like that or not, be prepared. Technology moves fast and we need to keep up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We have a lot of employee monthly events at HQ but I think it would be great if we do more off-site events like Beach Day, a Dodger Game, volunteering for local community events as a team, etc..

    Pros

    DTS is an organization that continues to evolve as part of a very aggressive business strategy. Employees are smart, creative, friendly. I have the opportunity to provide value and contribute- very important to me for job satisfaction. Management, for the most part, is willing to listen to different perspectives, and make decisions accordingly. I enjoy collaborating with a number of employees across the organization, as well. There is acknowledgement and effort to improve skills, processes and strategies for long term business success - a healthy sign that we know we need to continuously improve for DTS to win.

    Cons

    Change has been ongoing since I joined DTS. And not all of the change has been managed thoughtfully with consideration to impact beyond the immediate goals. Though improving, I would also like more candid communication and greater clarity regarding direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focusing on the basics of continuous improvement.
    Put concerted effort into improving management capability.
    Do a better job managing the change.

    Pros

    Great company with a strong vision

    Cons

    Confusing company to work for. Poor management, lacks leadership and lacks communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Disappointing to see that hard working employees who work hard, are proactive in their work ethic, and want to grow the business are eliminated while others who have no business being managers or leaders, are retained and probably promoted.

    I worked at DTS full-time

    Pros

    Nice facility. Have in house gym with free weights and machine. Also have Starbucks machines. Also decent 401k match, health insurance including eye and dental care.

    Cons

    Managed full time office employees like an assembly line worker. Value quantity over quality. Too much office politics for a small company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employees

    Pros

    If you're lucky enough to be in a well-run department, you can find a mix of challenging work and camaraderie. Compensation and benefits are generally on par with the market, if not better-than-average.

    Cons

    Upper management has a tendency to focus on themselves and overlook lower level contributors.
