A great company to work for in the Entertainment Industry

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

ProsSony 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.

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementIt would be great if more time was spent networking during the internship meetings.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Sony has an incredible internship program and provides a fantastic atmosphere for those curious about the ent. industry.

Intern (Former Employee)
Culver City, CA

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

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

ConsDidn'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 Senior Managementmake 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
