    I worked at Dolby full-time

    Pros

    Great culture of geeks and creative people. Not just a tech company, but a hybrid with an entertainment company. Old school company with people who have been working there for more then 30+ years. Also, every other Friday off, great location in the city, and opportunities to travel.

    Cons

    Company never had an agenda for UI/UX. Career advancement seem difficult depending on department. UI/UX felt like an after thought mostly.

    Advice to Management

    If your intention is to have UI/UX designers have some sort, if any plan for them.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dolby.

    Interview

    I was contacted for a non tech-related phone interview after applying online for a summer internship. The interviewer I spoke with seemed very rude and rushed, and very unhappy to speak with me. I was asked one or two extremely generic questions about Dolby and my work history and hung up on.
