    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at DTS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free coffee and plenty of tap water. A/C working most of the time since it's 120 out 9 months a year.

    Cons

    Extremely top-heavy organization with at least 2/3 of an already uninspiring management that is completely useless.
    Random layoffs of lower-level engineers seem to be the norm.
    Low-end benefits with high co-pays.

    Advice to Management

    Quit.

    I worked at DTS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many great audio software engineers, with the passion, drive and expertise to build world-class algorithms.

    Cons

    The upper management is filled by cronies that have no understanding of the technology or technology potential. For this reason, great engineers with great ideas get stuck trying to defend their research and development, all while the rest of the industry moves forward and embraces potential.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs a complete overhaul, beginning with the CTO and all his cronies he's put in place to keep his job security, overly high salary and compensation package, and of course retirement topped off. The upper management in the technology department has little to no understanding of the tech DTS develops! Trust me... if they could reinvent DTS as a pencil manufacturer, or just outsource the audio tech Dev to China or India, they'd do it in a heartbeat to fill their pockets faster. The last thing they'd want to do is actually learn about 3D audio tech and have something useful to contribute!
