Current Employee - Manager in Fort Myers, FL

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

Pros

We have a robust customer service and support infrastructure and work hard to find innovative ways to reach our customers. It's more like a family here than many companies, and people do care. We also have opportunities to innovate which is fun and rewarding.

Cons

There was a disconnect from working at a satellite office. Integrating more communication would help. Also, the company's financial difficulties and layoffs make for a stressful work environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make smart product decisions, increase communication between departments and don't forget the satellite offices.

    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.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good people to work with. A long history of engineering and product excellence. World top five brand leader.

    Cons

    The company is doing drastic cost cutting to stay afloat, and is not able to pursue innovative new products because of financial issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on new products and innovation, not selling assets - getting rid of your best people will lead to implosion even faster.
