    I have been working at Dolby full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Established and well respected brand, small company feel, A players, 9/80 schedule (great work/life balance), people are respectful, the work is interesting and challenging, and you get to work on cool technologies. Great company culture, beautiful SF office, takes innovation seriously and is positioned for success in future.

    Cons

    Things don't always happen overnight, but the company is paying attention/working on that.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to ask for feedback from your employees. Take risks. Shine a bigger light (publicly) on our technologies/products - they are pretty awesome.

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dolby (San Francisco, CA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    The interview was a painful process. It was very disorganized. The interviewer was not very interested in the interview as that person kept looking at their phone and texted while answering the questions. Plus waiting on them before the interview (45 mins) is a long time for someone to wait. People work and we also have schedules to meet.
