I worked at Dolby as an intern (more than an year)

Pros

Great people and great company. It seemed that during the time management swapped in and out a bit, but the culture was still fun and the every-other-Friday off schedule is fantastic.

Cons

Lots of swapping out of team members, very top heavy (Many managers, not enough financial analysts).

    Pros

    Every other Friday off; smart people; fun events;

    Cons

    Dolby is a small company that operates like a large company with all of its bureaucratic processes; over 30% of the employees are new within the past 3 years; while the company seems very employee centric, town halls, events, training etc there is something nasty beneath the surface; employees seem to disappear over night, there one day, gone the next, no warning, no communication. There are undercurrents of unhappiness in many employee groups. Jobs get "eliminated" on a whim. There are managers who are renouned for behaving badly to their employees including temper tantrums and out bursts, yet nothing is ever done. There may be some good employees but there are so many more excellent ones that have left or been pushed out ..mostly to much better jobs; All this might be tolerated if the company offered great salaries or bonuses but they pay on the low end and for tthe past few years, bonuses have been slim

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dust out the cobwebs; Get rid of some of your VPs and managers and their cronyism
