    I have been working at Sony Pictures Entertainment full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed culture, good amenities and good benefits. Overall atmosphere is good but depending on the function and division you are working in, work/life balance can vary.

    Cons

    Technology / systems lag behind other studios, lack of communication between divisions, no synergy between electronics and entertainment division. There is a rigidity at SPE in certain areas (technology, finance etc) that hampers creativity or improvement.

    Current Employee - Manager, Marketing in Culver City, CA

    I have been working at Sony Pictures Entertainment full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There was more of an entrepreneurial spirit when I was there, with more collaboration and less division between departments and responsibilities than at other studios.

    Cons

    Reactive instead of proactive to changing market conditions; great ideas but little or no follow-through; job cuts made in batches that don't make sense instead of thoughtful refining of processes and reallocating manpower

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reinstate intermediary levels for employee advancement (i.e., Senior Manager, Associate Director) throughout company, not just in select divisions
