Independent place that lacks direction and vision

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Foster City, CA

I have been working at Sony PlayStation

ProsInformal atmosphere, good benefits, good time off. People can be very friendly.

ConsThe company feels like it lacks direction. A great deal of bureaucracy strangles innovation. Company feels like it's loosing it's competitive edge in the age of online gaming. HR is a nightmare. No solid plan for advancement within the company. Company doesn't mentor. HR has no strategy in place to retain top talent. Pay is low. Talent is mediocre. Japanese style hierarchy and decision making structure is out of place in Silicon Valley. The company "events" have become an embarrassing joke (karaoke in the parking lot anyone?).

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease get a competent consulting group in here to look at management practices! Be more open with employees. Hire talent with solid backgrounds and some real management experience. Stop hiring internally from the Test department! This isn't the 90's! Fire half of the marketing staff.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
