    Pros

    I work with a great team can't say enough about them. They are some of the best at what they do.

    Cons

    There is no business like showbusiness. These guys know it from stem to stern. It is venture capital on steriods.

    I worked at Sony Pictures Entertainment full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I loved everything about working here. The people were smart, the campus in Culver City was gorgeous and the work was interesting.

    Cons

    Highly political atmosphere, no real respect for "hard" business skills. Very difficult to get into creative areas (aka the profit centers) once you're pegged as a suit.

    I worked at Sony Pictures Entertainment as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    Sony is one of the larger entertainment companies and this allows great experiences for its employees and interns. All the individuals that work here love what they do.

    Cons

    The company is so large that you can occasionally feel like just another employee. The intern program occasionally included time consuming tasks that were not specific to our position but required.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great if more time was spent networking during the internship meetings.

    I worked at Sony Pictures Entertainment as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    PAID; happy, welcoming people; relaxed, beautiful campus; learned about many different parts of the music business; had my own desk - really nice setup

    Cons

    Didn't have many duties at all, didn't feel like the office took advantage of the presence of an intern, didn't have access to gym, didn't meet many other interns (I was the only intern in my office and there weren't many opportunities to meet others)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make sure that the intern supervisors for each department have something set for interns to do; also maybe have more events for interns to network with each other - all the music interns together, all the marketing interns together, etc. etc. since these are the actual people we'll be competing against in the job market - good to know people your own age
    maybe give interns an opportunity to explore other offices within their department as well to see what the other internships in their field are like and what other internships sony offers
