    I have been working at Sony PlayStation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with really smart and creative people. Independent thinkers, even in the legal department people are fun, open-minded and know how to have fun while working hard and knowing their stuff. Great time off after Christmas (don't have to take your vacation hours), Pay is decent but not astounding, bonuses are good for those who do their work and do it well.

    Cons

    Can get competitive or weird among certain individuals who are very unique and maybe a bit off. They are a bit behind the times in tech resources for a tech company. Legal department employees use a somewhat annoying database, and the email system was backwards when I worked there. I hear they've since upgraded it.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Sony PlayStation.

    Interview Details

    For Sony Santa Monica studio.

    Applied online and received an email with a rather large programming test to be completed in a week. The test covered a wide variety of C++ and Assembly questions. Surprisingly, they had quite a bit of depth to them. I submitted my work and was told they decided to move on 3 days later. I emailed back asking for feedback and kindly enough the gentleman responded with some notes. His tone seemed very firm and disappointed almost, I got quite a lot wrong. But, I was very greatful he responded as most interviewers don't bother giving feedback at all. I knew exactly what I had to address to improve. Very greatful for that.

    Interview Questions
