I have been working at DTS full-time

Pros

Terrific facilities, benefits and ideals. The company does reward for hard work. Vacation accrual and sick accrual are on par with other small-mid companies. Decent telecommute policy (left to individual managers). Most managers allow for sliding work hours as long as the work is getting done.

Cons

It is impossible to feel like you are contributing to the end goals of the company unless you are a Director or above. The company frequently rewards "favorites" that are fed up the chain by incompetent Directors and VPs and in which the "favorite" has rarely done nothing more than work a couple of late nights. This casts doubt on the work of truly deserving rewardees. Lower level employees typically feel left out. The HR dept is not in touch with most of the employees. Slow to no career growth unless you are one of the boys.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get off the second floor once in a while and take a look around!!

    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.

    I worked at DTS full-time

    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.
