Seems nice on the surface

Senior Manager (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsEvery other Friday off; smart people; fun events;

ConsDolby 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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
