Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Sony PlayStation full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Some very good people to work with, nice location, decent perks.

Cons

If your VP is connected well, your group will do well. Pick the wrong horse and your department will get absorbed into a different one. That's not unique to this place. Future outlook is murky. Vita needs to do better. Everything is riding on ps4. If it doesn't do well, it will be the end.

Advice to Management

The new building is nice, but more investment in rewarding hard workers is the key.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Sony PlayStation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Initial impression of 'Sony' name on resume still good. A good learning experience on what type of company to not work for again.

    Cons

    Management out for what is in it for themselves only. No company loyalty. People who stay around are lifers, seeking static environment, no ambition, not about work or progress, just self preservation. Extremely risk adverse, not open to changes or new ideas. Management allowed to be spiteful, vindictive. Unprofessional behavior tolerated.

    Advice to Management

    Show concern and dedication to the company, walk the talk. Be open to change and new recommendations. Treat staff with respect.
