    I have been working at Sony Electronics full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Lots of work, if you wish to stay on top.

    Cons

    Japanese management with no US business experience. Poor understanding of future need. Top management need to be replace with better visionary leader. There are few Sr. leader taking SEL to grave.
    Giving customer support and service with people with no expertise cause loyal customer to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean the house ASAP.

    I worked at Sony Electronics full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Sony's a great place to work, but right now they're going through some restructuring, but what company isn't? They're generous with compensation, benefits and internal education which just makes working there that much better. They're trying hard to keep their employees happy while trying to make ends meet in the increasingly commoditized CE industry.

    Cons

    The challenges working at Sony in 2014 is the challenging environment the CE industry has left for Sony to overcome. Simply put, sales are down and the teams are working extremely hard to right the ship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice to management. They know what they're doing and how to make it right.

    I have been working at Sony Electronics as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    the work is meaningful, people are great, management cares about you, you are always in the loop, and the pay is great

    Cons

    sometimes there tends to be a delay between questions and management's response time. while you're given a lot of freedom, there is sometimes a lapse in communication in what is expected.

    Pros

    Everyone who works there LOVES Sony. The moral can be challenging at times but everyone is there for each other. The love is infectious

    Cons

    Everyone loves Sony so much it's hard to see past the walls and what the future could be. They need to create a culture of trust from the top down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ease up on process on control. Allow people to be free in their work and decision making. The love for Sony by the employees will help Sony win.
