I have been working at Sony Electronics full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Flexible work hours, job autonomy. Good pay, nice work environment, building and amenities.
Smart people for the most part.
Good benefits, but not on par with "Best Places to Work" companies

Cons

Sad to see old culture driving this company into the ground.
No incentives or reward to do better.
Company asks you to commit but they are not reciprocal
I don't have the confidence that Sony will be around in 8 or 10 years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You can't just talk about being innovative, you have to advocate it.
Slashing research and headcount is only a temporary fix.

Recommends
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Sony Electronics as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    As an intern, there's a lot to learn. Being here can teach a lot of how to act in a corporate culture. If you have the right kind of boss, they'll take the time to mentor and encourage.

    Cons

    No real work culture. It's not a lively and bustling place, totally unexpected from a tech company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to make a more engaging and enjoyable work culture.

    I have been working at Sony Electronics full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have worked in engineering, marketing, sales, & business management with several Sony companies

    Cons

    We work for the benefit of the Japanese manufacturing employees, not the shareholders

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Broaden the team making executive decisions to include middle management who actually works with customers
