I have been working at Dolby

Pros

Good management support, great work environment, opportunities to learn, nice location, good balance of work and personal life, overall good experience

Cons

Can't think of any, traffic hour can be busy, far from the 101 north, the city can be cold sometimes

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They were all good, I guess more involvement, they do have their thing together and treat people with respect, good place overall

    I have been working at Dolby

    Pros

    Great brand, opportunity to meet legendary Dolby technology innovators, great engineering team

    Cons

    Head of Sales&Marketing destroyed division morale and provided air coverage to his preferred apprentices who fail to prove competence; Extreme top-heavy hierarchy with over flooded VPs and Senior Directors who can’t give guidance and demonstrate leadership

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is long past due to replace the head of sales&marketing and bring back Dolby core value in honoring employee assets and re-storing business integrety.

    I worked at Dolby

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Management 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 ManagementAdvice

    It 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.
