I worked at Sony Electronics full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

The pay and work environment were good. The people were friendly, loyal to Sony and dedicated to working hard.

Cons

The senior management team is absolutely clueless on how to bounce back from one dramatic setback after another. Samsung, LG, Apple, Beats and more are eating what used to be Sony's lunch and nobody knows what to do to stop the trend. Japanese management remains clueless to what resonates in the American market.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on putting the quality back into the products. Too many bad product launches with defects have turned former loyal Sony customers away. Time to shake up the top US and Japanese management teams. The same old people won't be able breathe new life into a company that is on it's last legs in the US.
