I have been working at Dolby

Pros

Smart people, respectful working environment, respected brand, great industry connections, strong history, strong research and engineering teams, proven ability to solve ecosystem challenges, stock option program

Cons

Revolving door in marketing and sales leadership, lack of focus in executing new products, mixed record on integrating acquistions, annual review process has become highly political - a popularity contest, poor work-life balance, the "new" Dolby has less respect for the individual

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't try to do so much. Select solutions to a few significant industry problems and properly resource them. Focus on bulding Marketing and Sales leadership, and stop "change for change sake".

    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.
