    I have been working at Sony PlayStation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    * Amazing product (PlayStation!!!)
    * If lucky, you get to work on very visible parts of the products
    * Get to try pretty cool games or tech (Morpheus)
    * Nice campus

    Cons

    * Work/life balance can be poor - a few people do all the work - others do the minimum
    * Don't even think about being a contractor there: you will be treated like garbage
    * All key decisions are made in Japan, no involvement of US people in the decisions
    * Impossible to have a relevant role or any ambition - dead end for your career
    * Low compensation compared to the rest of Silicon Valley
    * Management aware of all these problems - not doing anything about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Stop ignoring all the problems - start acting to improve the situation
    * Detach the company from Japan as much as possible - they are the reason the mother company is doing bad (Japanese work culture)
    * Reward people who work hard - including contractors

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
