Advice to ManagementAdvice

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.

    Fantastic environment for people who love digital media.

    Collaborative and team oriented work environment.
    Strong sense of culture.
    Talented and smart peers.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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.
