Pros

Fantastic environment for people who love digital media.
Small development teams lend to your ability to work on a variety of responsibilities.
Work is meaningful and challenging.
Collaborative and team oriented work environment.
Strong sense of culture.
Talented and smart peers.

Cons

Not a place if you like to hide your cube. The pro to small teams can also be a con for people that are accustomed to being in a sea of cubicles.

Advice to Management

At Dolby there are amazing employees. People who work hard and create some of the most brilliant advancements in technology. I feel fortunate to be work alongside some of the most smart and grounded people I have ever met. My only advice, a little acknowledgement goes a long way.

    Pros

    - 9/80 (every other Friday off)
    - Great people to work with
    - Awesome technologies and products
    - Network with the best in the industry

    Cons

    - Lot of political issues for a small organization
    - Changes seem to happen constantly
    - Promotions rarely happen, they usually hire "experienced" professionals outside of the company and give them Director positions

    Advice to Management

    You have a wealth of knowledge and passionate individuals who want to make a difference internally, but you keep losing them because they are stuck in the same position doing the same thing for years. People try to break out and are reprimanded...Promote from within so you can keep your knowledge base and not have them go to competitors or your customers.

    Pros

    Excellent coworkers
    9/80 schedule (every other Friday off)
    Decent salary & benefits

    Cons

    Unfocused vision
    Little room for advancement
    Lack of marketable innovation
    Senior management from outside the industry lack understanding of environment

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to be something the company is not, and focus on being a solid ingredient technology. Instead of the high profile splashes at the Oscars, premiers, etc. put funds toward really building a large engineering team instead of one that is stretched too thin and across too many projects.
