Pros

Excellent products, genuine concern, effort and desire to make our products the best in the industry. Lots of opportunity to work with employees at every level. No formality or rigidity, very congenial atmosphere. Many really smart colleagues.

Cons

Some members of senior management are entrenched and distracted or otherwise insufficiently responsive to important issues as they arise. Payroll, finance and accounting systems are overly labor-intensive and are highly dysfunctional.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more proactive. Attend more quickly to important issues as they arise so as to avoid operating in reactive mode.

    I have been working at Sony PlayStation as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed working environment, lovely team mates, fun atmosphere.

    Cons

    Salary is not paid on time each month, management does not seem to know what they are doing half the time, communication is lacking between management and employees, as well as other departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is very old fashioned, lacks creative thinking, as well as basic management skills such as taking care of employees, ensuring their development, and communicating KPIs and other objectives. Bit of a sexist undertone with some people, as well as the feeling that employees are highly undervalued, and can easily be replaced with others.
