Not a bad place, but limited growth opportunities

Senior Staff Engineer (Former Employee) Burbank, CA

ProsSmart co-workers, so you learn things from them every day.
Dolby isa " behind the scenes" leader of many new technologies.

ConsManagement does not encourage technical advancement and management skills development.
Decisions are always based on "consensus, " but the only consensus at the end of most meetings is to have more meetings. Few people are granted specific decision making authority.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt is often better to make a decision (even if it is wrong) than to delay too much. The lack of a decision drags things out too long and limits the technical staff's ability to focus on a specific direction.
