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

    Pros

    Smart engineers, scientists and salespeople.

    Cons

    No sense of marketing at all. It's all tactics and absolutely no leadership, vision, or strategy. So many consultants weighing in on what to do and what not to do and the execs listen to all of them, pay them ridiculous amounts, then try to execute on every tactic they suggest.

    Advice to Management

    Never having one in place, please hire a marketing leadership team and hire our first ever CMO and perhaps from the entertainment industry. And please create a marketing plan with specific budgets, goals, and measurement plans.
