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

Pros

Really great place to work with managers who understand the family to work balance needs of employees. Plus they make video games!

Cons

In my time there they had 3 layoffs. I was caught in the third one in 2011. I don't think there has been one since then.

    I worked at Sony Online Entertainment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Co-Workers, good learning experience, amazing products, good opportunities to see the industry from the inside.

    Cons

    It is almost impossible to advance beyond a starting position. The pay is a bit low. No benefits or vacation to speak of.

    Advice to Management

    Try to acknowledge the effort of the good employees. There is no incentive besides the treat of unemployment - change that.
