Current Employee - Director in San Francisco, CA

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

Pros

good people, great technology and excellent benefits

Cons

Looks 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 ManagementAdvice

Clean up the dysfunctional management or be irrelevant in a couple of years.

    Current Employee - Staff Engineer in San Francisco, CA

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

    Pros

    9/80 schedule if you are in one of the old offices (San Francisco)

    Cons

    * Slow to change
    * Moving up requires either luck through a void or oppurtunity, or by networking internally - not really merit based.
    * Poor recognition for what you achieve. Unless you're on a sexy project you might as well be invisible.
    * Too many managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more. Hire more employees and take some risks.
