Pros

I really enjoyed my first year of working at Sony in 2008 it was a great place to work. After the first round of layoffs at the RTP office there was low morale. Then a year later they closed the office.

Cons

The management was from Lund and that was an issue to get direction from a country with a totally different culture.

Advice to Management

Focus on Innovation - its the only way to survive.

    Pros

    Flat Infrastructure. Excellent benefits. Excellent training. Loved the people. It was a wonderful experience.

    Cons

    Sony Ericsson did not do a good job promoting their own product in the US so we always felt on edge about our jobs. In the end that was the death of us. We ended up being laid off in October 2008 when the CDMA channel was completely shut down.
