    Pros

    The THX brand is iconic and there are a lot of really good people working in engineering and other departments, below the management ranks. The company has partnerships with some of the biggest names in technology and entertainment.

    Cons

    THX has no solid leadership, and is currently managed by an "Executive Committee" of VPs who micromanage every aspect of the business. In the past few years, the company leadership (General Manager or President) position has changed 5 times. Accountability at the management level is non-existent. In fact, managers who have led failing product initiatives are often promoted, while some of the hardest workers are overlooked. For a company with less than 70 employees, the internal politics are toxic. And THX's reputation within the cinema and electronics worlds are tainted.

    Advice to Management

    You can't run a company by committee. THX needs solid leadership under the direction of an experienced CEO or president. And, if this person is hired, they need to be granted the freedom to make tough decisions without interference from the Board. Poor management from the BOD level, has plagued this company for more than a decade.

    Pros

    Nice people all around.
    You can talk to the sales people, the marketing people, the engineers, and even the CEO and they all have very good advice and words of encouragement.
    There are a lot of stuff to learn.

    Cons

    There are a lot of meetings but that is how the industry is.
