Approves of CEO

I worked at Sony Electronics full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Sony's a great place to work, but right now they're going through some restructuring, but what company isn't? They're generous with compensation, benefits and internal education which just makes working there that much better. They're trying hard to keep their employees happy while trying to make ends meet in the increasingly commoditized CE industry.

Cons

The challenges working at Sony in 2014 is the challenging environment the CE industry has left for Sony to overcome. Simply put, sales are down and the teams are working extremely hard to right the ship.

Advice to Management

No advice to management. They know what they're doing and how to make it right.

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

    Pros

    I had the good fortune to work on some cutting edge products with a wide array of technologies. Worked with some of the best people I've ever met. Flexible work hours, great work-life balance, scenic San Diego.

    Cons

    Corporate politics and redtape can hamper project effectiveness. Can be frustratingly shortsighted at times.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your engineers, they (we) have great ideas which could help improve the company tremendously.

    I have been working at Sony Electronics as a contractor

    Pros

    Fun place to work. Very loose and inviting. I enjoy getting an inside look at what a big company looks like from the inside.

    Cons

    Management seems to be a revolving door. Sony suffers from being too big and is slow to react to any new decision, often causing them to be behind other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to be new and different. Times change. The same model doesn't always work.
