I worked at Sony Online Entertainment full-time for 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 for 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 ManagementAdvice

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

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

    Pros

    Easy-going. Casual dress code. Flexible Schedule. Free Coffee. Membership bonuses for their games.

    Cons

    High turnover rate. Nepotism. A bit disorganized. Performance does not matter as much as it should.
