    I worked at DTS full-time for 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!!!

    I worked at DTS full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice facility, decent compensation package (Employee Stock Purchase Plan, 401K, health insurance...)

    Cons

    Small company, but operates like a very large one (excessive overhead, sluggish process, low productivity...). Market is small and competitive. More than 10 years after going public, the stock price is still in the IPO territory. Some senior managers occupy critical positions without proven management records (insufficient domain knowledge, poor people skills…). They often fail to value subordinates' potential, do understand projects' scopes and necessary resources. High turnover rate. A few can leave with dignity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish a more objective review process. Not only count the number of projects accomplished, but also look into the significance of each project and the amount of resources consumed. Minimize cost cutting if it reduces employee morale.
