    I have been working at Sony Electronics full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    a True melting pot of employees....many races are seen and represented in the workforce.

    Cons

    Downsizing programs especially in 2014 saw a lot of good people leaving the company. Outsourcing the jobs signals Sony's non loyalty to its employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward and invest in your best people. Keep your best people! You're being cheap and quality of service is declining over the years as a result, which is a direct cause for lost business. Listen to advice from founder Akio Morita- 1. “Advertising and promotion alone will not sustain a bad product or a product that is not right for the times.”

    2. “From a management standpoint, it is very important to know how to unleash people’s inborn creativity. My concept is that anybody has creative ability, but very few people know how to use it.”

    3. “I believe people work for satisfaction. I believe it is a big mistake to think that money is the only way to compensate a person for his work. People need money, but they also want to be happy in their work and proud of it.”

    4. “There is no secret ingredient or hidden formula responsible for the success of the best Japanese companies.”

    5. “There are three creativities: creativity in technology, in product planning, and in marketing. To have any one of these without the others is self defeating in business.”

    I worked at Sony Electronics full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    some smart people, hard workers, decent compensation

    Cons

    extremely difficult market, slow and reactionary, senior management overseas does not understand consumers in different regions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    change must occur in approach and philosophy towards markets and competitors. Need to be more innovative and not try to just save declining categories

    Doesn't Recommend
