    Pros

    Dolby Laboratories in one is very low-profile company that has an inspiring founder. This is one of the oldest companies in a technology field located in the heart of San Francisco. The company also has a manufacturing facility in Brisbane on the Peninsula. The company has a hand in the film industry and has the most renown for this; its technology has also been adopted as a standard in communications and most consumer electronics.

    Cons

    The company does not effectively create an environment that provides work-life balance for employees. Many salaried employees worked non-stop, over weekends and holidays with long overtime hours during the period when the company went through IPO. Neither does the organization pro-actively provide opportunities for employees to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Great people make great organizations. Make an point of recognizing the efforts of Dolby employees. They have given the company its edge.
