I worked at Sony Online Entertainment full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Fun atmosphere
Great people
Quality games
The contract company they use offers great benefits

Cons

Better planning could lead to less OT
Some money issues causing cuts in some of the QOL things like breakfast and OT dinners

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better planning and time gained from pushing back deadlines should be used for polish rather than cramming in more features.

    Former Contractor - Web Developer - Front-End in San Diego, CA
    Former Contractor - Web Developer - Front-End in San Diego, CA

    I worked at Sony Online Entertainment as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Really talented (artists and technical) colleagues.
    - Laid back atmosphere.
    - Good equipment and tools to work with.

    Cons

    I was there is a temp and aspiring to get on fulltime. While I did enjoy the laid back atomosphere there were some employees that were not dependable. We're working on a deadline, long hours and stressful and some folks in my group spent the evenings playing with kit airplanes in the employee parking lot. Was a real Good Ol Boys atmosphere. In the end, was offered a position at another company with a huge sign-on bonus, great benefits and salary.
