    I worked at Sony Electronics

    Pros

    Had fun, did QA. Was HS internship. Not much to say, worth applying to for sure as a highschooler.

    Cons

    Sony Corporation is the electronics business unit and the parent company of the Sony Group, which is engaged in business through its four operating segments – Electronics (including video games, network services and medical business), Motion pictures, Music, Children's videos and Financial Services.

    I worked at Sony Electronics as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Getting paid to watch TV was fun
    Some pretty cool co-workers
    Fairly laid back if you had the right position

    Cons

    Testing management was unskilled, and unprofessional. When bad SW caused projects to falter, test was blamed for lax work habits, rather than management who set timelines, or developers who under-delivered.

    Employees were encouraged to tattle tale on each other, seriously, this happened.

    Used Excel spreadsheets for ALL test documentation, no TFS, no HP, not even DevTrack.

    No concept of test planning, or pre-planning period.

    Management opening admitted Samsung made better products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop moving test department between Japan and US. Hire some test leads who understand basic principles of SDLC. Cultivate a test department that fits the Sony name. I've worked at big and small companies testing SW for 8 years and this was a layover between real jobs.
