    I worked at Dolby full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting products, amazing brand, great engineers. Good opportunities, often missed.

    Cons

    Totally don't understand marketing. So that sales control everything. Huge swings of policy based on the whims of the top management.

    Advice to Management

    Think about what you are doing. Remember that ingredient brands are effectively consultancy businesses and so trust staff and build on that trust by encouraging open decision making. Salaries are currently based on the 'bonus' of working for the brand - that is no longer a policy, it is slow suicide.


  2. "Misguided management taking the company from bad to worse"

    I have been working at Dolby full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great technology, smart people, off-Fridays

    Cons

    No work life balance with management having no regard for weekends, vacation or
    Even sick leave. Negative, demotivating environment which appears to reward mediocrity and stifles creativity. Domineering self appointed CMO who does not have a clue about marketing and a woefully inexperienced leadership team who make one bad decision after another.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a credible CMO, invest in marketing and LISTEN to employees
