    This company has no idea what they're doing, or what they want to be when they grow up.

    Pros

    There were some very bright people at THX who were very knowledgable about their particular area of expertise.

    Cons

    There is absolutely no direction from the top. They would send you off to complete a project, then ignore it when you were finished. They would commit resources to initiatives, then cancel them as soon as you started to make headway. They would engage in discussions for strategic partnerships, then walk away from the table with no warning. Life at THX was nothing more than vacillating from one time suck to the next with no purpose or direction.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what direction you want to go, articulate it, and stick with it.

    Pros

    The THX brand is iconic and there are a lot of really good people working in engineering and other departments, below the management ranks. The company has partnerships with some of the biggest names in technology and entertainment.

    Cons

    THX has no solid leadership, and is currently managed by an "Executive Committee" of VPs who micromanage every aspect of the business. In the past few years, the company leadership (General Manager or President) position has changed 5 times. Accountability at the management level is non-existent. In fact, managers who have led failing product initiatives are often promoted, while some of the hardest workers are overlooked. For a company with less than 70 employees, the internal politics are toxic. And THX's reputation within the cinema and electronics worlds are tainted.

    Advice to Management

    You can't run a company by committee. THX needs solid leadership under the direction of an experienced CEO or president. And, if this person is hired, they need to be granted the freedom to make tough decisions without interference from the Board. Poor management from the BOD level, has plagued this company for more than a decade.
