Pros

SOE is hands-down one of the most diverse and geek-friendly workplaces in existence. If you have ever felt the odd man out at your job because you have no common interests with your coworkers, at SOE it's guaranteed you'll find people with whom you can connect on a personal as well as professional level.

Cons

As it is a subsidiary of a multinational corporation, SOE is unfortunately sometimes forced to pay the price of other divisions' problems. A good year in the online gaming industry can be offset by a bad year in the film or home electronics division.

Advice to Management

Give more credence to feedback from your rank-and-file employees about upcoming products, even if it means reining in the 'vision' of your premier developers. Most of your people came to the company because they know and love games. This gives them a keener insight into what will and will not succeed with the gaming community at large.
