    Former Employee - Quality Manager in San Diego, CA

    I worked at Sony Electronics full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    They provided me with an opportunity to make a difference. I provided information solutions where none existed before. I managed quality departments, reducing labor costs and improving product quality.

    Cons

    Sony could not compete by manufacturing products in San Diego. They closed the VAIO computer factory in San Diego, and are producing all computers overseas now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to find a way to leverage the talented work force that you have in order to be competitive in the world market.

    I worked at Sony Electronics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity to grow your career upward but also horizontally. The new HQ building is magnificent including an excellent health club. Very nice, dedicated employees.

    Cons

    Their profitability is struggling. Future doesn't look good. They used to be cutting edge as far as bringing products to market but are not handling competition from Apple and Samsung very well. So much of the talent leaves Sony to join the competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employees better, motivate them to stay at Sony rather than losing them to the competition. Cut overhead in Tokyo.
