I worked at Sony PlayStation full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great products and a total blast to work with the fun people. Good competitive industry full of great smart people.

Cons

Lack of direction from Senior Management. Don't take great care of employees as it is a 'privilege' to work there. Not competitive salaries for same reason.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to your best employees and ensure they are valued. Give a clear direction to the workforce and keep the politics out of the lower levels.

    I have been working at Sony PlayStation full-time

    Pros

    Really relaxed environment with lots of really chill people. Definitely get to see a lot of diversity in the studios - and everyone here has a huge passion for the gaming industry

    Cons

    Little disorganized and frustrating trying to get things through higher corporate levels. Sometimes too many different departments and it can be confusing as to who's in charge of what.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure studios so that communication is efficient throughout each individual studio as well as a good flow into the corporate levels.

    I have been working at Sony PlayStation as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The brand name of the company

    Cons

    Spread too thin, carries a lot of extra baggage, cheap, no new ideas, very conservative and waste a lot of money on too many disparate technologies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become nimble
