    I have been working at Sony PlayStation

    Pros

    Atmosphere, management (locally, at least). Not a corporate environment. Creative, driven people.

    Cons

    Location in Playa Vista a bit remote.
    In the rare instances of having to deal with "corporate" (HR, Finance), I am driven to madness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    By any means necessary, send word upward to corporate as to how their dysfunction negatively affects the company.
    Continue to buffer us from them to keep the local atmosphere as positive as it is.
    Work/Life balance is often verbally stressed, yet doesn't really take in practice.

    I applied online – interviewed at Sony PlayStation.

    Interview Details

    I got the phone screen interview 2 months later after I submitted my resume online. I was interviewed my 2 senior engineers. They just went through my resume and asked questions relevant to the stuff I have done. Like how multithreading works, explain different kinds of rendering techniques. No technical questions.
