Great Experience

Former Employee - Business Analyst in San Diego, CA

Pros

Co-workers are friendly and many friendships were made during my tenure there. Everyone wants to succeed and everyone works together to get projects done.

Cons

Constant fear of job layoff can be a difficult work environment. Many times employees who are left after a layoff in a department are expected to continue performing or increase productivity with less manpower.

    Pros

    Benefits are decent. The building is conveniently located next to the San Jose airport.

    Cons

    Rank/file employee turnover at this business unit is incredibly high. Specifically, turnover is at least 4-5 times higher than most Silicon Valley companies. As a result, this business unit is "always hiring." In contrast, no one in senior management has left this business unit in the past 10 years.

    HR is aware of some (but probably not all) of the problems that exist in this business unit. However, unlike an American company, HR is powerless to do anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Phil Molyneaux: You are in charge or US operations. Why is the employee turnover at this business unit so high? What are the complaints from former Sony Alumni, regarding this business unit? (There are a lot of US Research Center alumni out there.) Please find out. The best course of action is to disband the business unit, and to form a new one, with a brand new senior management team.
