Sony is a great company to work for but mgmt is still stuck in the past

Sales Representative (Current Employee)
Philadelphia, PA

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

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
