      Pros

      Dolby encourages employees to experiment and grow, which perfectly fits the DNA of this historic company. Fair salaries, good benefits, fun to be aligned with the entertainment business, nice people, 9/80 schedule is lovely. The company has particularly shone during the pandemic by taking care of employees in numerous ways.

      Cons

      Need to be mindful in the neighborhood, but excellent 24 security and safety measures.

      Pros

      9/80 schedule, every other Friday off to re-energize Flexible Work schedule R&D and Eng teams creating great tech for entertainment Amazing facilities

      Cons

      Leadership is unable to create a mission statement paired with values. It's difficult to do your work without these. Political culture based on performative alyship. Even with the addition of new systems, there are too many manual processes. Inefficient roll out of new initiatives. Though they say they are collaborative, every department moves to the beat of their own drum.

      Pros

      Truly inclusive management respect and decision making. Opportunity galore to grow and learn. The universal 9/80 work schedule is a definite draw. The ESPP program is also a big perk.

      Cons

      Salaries are not competitive in many areas of the business, and vacation accrual is capped at 2 weeks per year, and must be accrued before expending, but can grow to an overall cap.

      More or Less Great Place to Work

      Feb 18, 2021 - Anonymous

      Pros

      9/80 schedule (every other Friday off), great work/life balance, decent pay/benefits, onsite gym and cafeteria, RSUs and profit sharing, ESPP, bonuses, 401k matching, (healthy) snacks. I can only speak for myself on this but awesome teammates/function who are friendly, actually work as a team and are supportive both in career and personal matters, and no micromanaging. I think Dolby is working hard on large initiatives such as sustainability and DBI. Financial stability - Dolby hardly has debt.

      Cons

      I think there are some people who come off entitled and expect immediate solutions that only would benefit their agenda vs the bigger picture. You may see some 'cliquey-ness.' Not a lot of upward mobility or recognition reflecting in salary raises/bonuses - you/your manager really has to fight for it or find creative ways. You're not prioritized if you're not in a revenue generating group. No teeth from management - a lot of 'wrist slapping' and letting people do what they want when it comes to spending money or not following procedures and then want to complain about it later.
