    Very good

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

    ConsJapanese 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 Senior ManagementClean the house ASAP.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Sr. Manager Review

    Marketing Manager, Retail (Former Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsSony'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.

    ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementNo advice to management. They know what they're doing and how to make it right.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    once in a life time opportunity

    Ambassador (Current Employee)

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

    Conssometimes 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Friendly and attentive interview. I was given great business insight and a lot of guidance through the process.

    Product Marketing Specialist (Former Employee)

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

    ConsEveryone 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 Senior ManagementEase 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.
