Pros

The company has talented and professional individuals in some organizations that make the work environment pleasurable, in addition the company provides good benefits and competitive salaries. For those considering employment with Sony the company will provide a good working experience because of the many professional managers, technicians and engineers.

Cons

The company is continually rightsizing because of the business environment and competition,

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Company needs to be more customer focused and not limit the abilities of their internal talent. In addition, the company needs to find more proactive and catchy ways or marketing instead of strictly relying on trade shows.

    Pros

    From my 10+ years of experience, Sony Direct retail has some of the brightest retail managers and most passionate staff that I've worked with in any industry. This company has some seriously talented individuals who love what they do. Most staff is invested and rarely feels the need to look for greener pastures. Work life balance is better than most, and compensation is above industry average.

    Cons

    This is a great company to have a career with, except for the now very major issue that the company's financial difficulties have finally caught up and are affecting livelihoods within the workforce. Also, there's a major disconnect between corporate and the retail stores in terms of regulated messaging. The company overall hires great retail managers and staff, however regulating retail operations is clearly not the company's strong suit, and the US side of things is clearly hamstrung by corporate in Tokyo.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate in Tokyo is clearly undergoing an identity crisis in terms of product planning and company retraction, and it has finally caught up and is coming at the expense of many livelihoods being affected across Sony in the US.
