    Pros

    There are some truly talented people here, and the technology is amazing. There's lots of cash in the bank, and passion around the industry we participate. Creating entertainment products and technologies is great.

    Cons

    Most of the internal promotion is the same inexperienced leadership that keeps trying the same things, expecting different results. Dolby is bleeding the talented employees that want to make a difference, but just can't get traction with the executives.

    Advice to Management

    replace the VPs that aren't meeting their goals, are alienating the good employees, and blame the market on their failures. Promote the people that actually get things done and have the big ideas.

    Pros

    Many creative and talented employees, especially engineers Great benefits, Insurance, 401K with matching 9/80 schedule (every other Friday off) Competitive pay Very profitable and growing

    Cons

    Senior management is all new since the IPO – not from audio/entertainment industry Dolby is still struggling to transition to a growth oriented company after 40 years as a privately held company Company is more average in non-engineering areas

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees Focus more on enabling engineering and keep engineers connected to customers Develop leaders from within, let them lead
