I have been working at DTS full-time

Pros

Some of the best people in the industry. Beautiful facility and common areas. Some managers/directors/VP's are great to work for.

Cons

Low pay, long hours and demanding. Lots of stress and pressure. Extremely limited job growth opportunity. Long term employees are treated are ignored/brushed aside. Managers could care less about direct reports. Low/bad employee morale. Managing staff is extremely disconnected from the low level employees. Managers only care about themselves and their career path.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take care of your long term employees, experience and knowledge are difficult to replace.

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

    Pros

    Leadership is very incompetent, without capability to tell good from bad, so if you are good people pleaser, and prepared to be obedient to your boss, it's a great place to work: you don't have to do your best, very relaxing if you always listen to your boss and never contribute your own ideas...

    Cons

    Very bad leadership, too many unqualified, dishonest directors and VPs. None of them really know how to make a successful product (guess in how many years this company hasn't rolled out really new products?). Traditional codec tech and Blue-ray are still their mainstage, but obviously blue-ray is going down. The company does not care about the development and the long term career path of its employees at all. the leadership do not really do anything meaningful, but play politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talented people have been leaving this company continuously. Evaluate the resource controlled by and the outcome of the key directors/VPs and their work quality to identify who are actually abusing company resource but achieving nothing. It's not complicated, just use your common sense to do it. Change the leadership ASAP, crisis has been on the way, perhaps it has been too late. Pls revisit my comments here in two years.

    Very much run by cliques, and not at all honest.

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

    Pros

    Meeting customers is great, they appreciate the sound quality. Poor quality mastering equipment gives the challenges for making valuable improvements.

    Cons

    No matter what great feats you achieve, if one or more of the high ups doesn't like you, you're treated like the cleaning staff. Extremely dishonest managers and illegal firings are the rule of law here, covered by a pay-out to sign away your rights.
    There was a lot of back-biting and scheming apparent and several two-faced managers you wouldn't want to share anything with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just talk about caring, sharing, loving, respecting, make an effort to implement it.
