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

Pros

Great incentives/gifts/trips... no micro-managing & flexible work life... it's always fun to sell consumer electronics instead of a widget

Cons

Lack of recognition that competition is tough... pricing is higher than industry average... flat panel tv's are considered a commodity product by general public so high-quality differentiation is difficult

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let the past be the past and recognize that Samsung/LG have changed the landscape of the consumer electronics industry.

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

    Pros

    Some really cool technology and lots of untapped potential. Most co-workers are very passionate and capable, if not shell-shocked from round after round of layoffs. A good place if you're really into office politics.

    Cons

    Few, if any, of the executives are true leaders. The current path seems to indicate the company will become irrelevant -- there appears to be no real strategy whatsoever other than laying off more and more people. Colleagues in Japan are in no way aligned with local realities; duplicate and contrary efforts abound.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to explain why it's not hopeless, but don't sugarcoat the truth -- you do yourselves a disservice.
