Pros980 Friday's
Engineers treated very well -we're very much a family - honored to work with so many talented people

    Pros: Good benefits Great 9/80 schedule Many talented colleagues Cons: Mediocre executive team No vision See Dolby as a cash cow (which is probably what the Dolby… Advice to Senior Management: Everything starts from the CEO. This one is weak, has no vision and no charisma. The quarterly employee meetings are pathetic. Many employees no longer… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
