    I have been working at Sony Pictures Home Entertainment full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Generally, a pleasant atmosphere, depending on what department you are in. Career advancement possible at lower (sub manager) positions. TV and digital arenas are volatile but exciting as they're growth areas. Film and physical home entertainment more uncertain as arenas contracting. Great medical benefits, beautiful movie lot.

    Cons

    Not a great deal of vision and difficult to remain optimistic as layoffs continue each year, a response to a contracting business. Salaries, as with all studios, are lower than the tech companies.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Sony Pictures Home Entertainment in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    The most important thing about interviewing with Sony Pictures, is to be well versed of the department for which you are applying for. They want to hire someone that is very aware of the department no matter what the position is because they do promote their employees. Having prior experience seemed important, but the interview was about what the department does. Had I been more prepared as to what the department was all about as opposed to being prepared to share how qualified I as for the position, I believe the interview would have run much smoother. Also, it is important to know who you are being interviewed by. Know what they do, their history, what they are involved in--this gives you more to talk about and shares that you did your homework.

    Interview Questions
    • The most unexpected questions were about what the department does. It was expected that I know the answer.   Answer Question
