Dolby is living off it's past glory and is out of touch with current market realities

Senior Manager (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsReputable brand
Talented employees
Exciting industry (although Dolby is missing out on the big opportunities)
9/80 work week
San Francisco

ConsUtterly clueless exec. management team, several of whom lack the qualifications, training and experience required of their roles.
Decision making is glacially slow...by the time a decision has been reached, the market opportunity has been lost (Dolby's indecisiveness=Competitors gain)
Talent is severely underutilized...employees brought in for their past achievements & great/creative ideas and then left to "die on the vine" once they're in their job.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe CEO (and EVP Sales/Mktg) need to be replaced with experienced & talented leaders. Both have been placed in roles that are incompatible with their skill set and experience, as evidenced in Dolby's declining market share, consumer confidence and employee dissatisfaction.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
