    I have been working at Sony PlayStation full-time

    Pros

    Exciting industry, cutting edge enterainment products. Flexibility to plan your schedule from Jan-October.

    Get to try the products first, huge discounts on PlayStation products.

    Cons

    Disorganized R.A.D. department that doesn't give you the tools to effectively do your job and manage your territory.

    Absolutely no opportunity for advancement, as they fill 100% of the open management positions from outside the organization (within the past 3 years anyway).

    Unattainable goals, too much work in too short of deadline to get completed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within. Family values are on your mission statement, however a PTO blackout longer than our retail partners is unfair. Hiring from outside the company has to stop, Jack Tretton needs to take a close look at how his Senior VP's are performing...

    I have been working at Sony PlayStation full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Strong tradition
    Stability in a fluid industry

    Cons

    The dichotomy of purpose - serve the platform/serve the games, permeates all aspects of the business.
    The uber-traditional hierarchal structure impedes the innovation and growth they so crave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Flatten out; allow managers, senior managers, and directors to make decisions appropriate decisions without escalating all the way to the top. If you can't trust your leadership, address that; let your creative minds breathe in all groups.
