Director of Marketing

Director (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Dolby full-time for more than 5 years

Prosgood people, great technology and excellent benefits

ConsLooks great from outside. Highly politically charged management. Reminds me of the movie "The Firm". Enough said. The company just cannot compete in the market for non-mandated technologies.

Advice to Senior ManagementClean up the dysfunctional management or be irrelevant in a couple of years.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Could be much worse

Staff Engineer (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Dolby full-time for more than 8 years


Pros: 9/80 schedule if you are in one of the old… Cons: * Slow to change * Moving up requires either luck through a void or oppurtunity, or by networking internally - not really merit… Advice to Senior Management: Spend more. Hire more employees and take some risks. More
