    Pros

    The people are what make the company. It was fun to head into the office each day and see what would happen next. Really enjoyed the company softball team!

    Cons

    A few bad apples could really ruin the atmosphere. Cultures sometimes did clash, especially when "traditional" executives from vendors would arrive and forget the "When in Rome" mentality. You have to have a very thick skin at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My direct manager really understood the balance between work and home life.

    Sony presented few opportunities for professional growth in a slow moving bureaucratic company.

    Pros

    Sony has many talented hardware and advanced technology researchers. It is possible to work on interesting projects of your own design.

    Cons

    Sony is both bureaucratic and highly political. This environment makes it extremely difficult to get anything shipped, and never in the right form.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reorganize the HR and finance organizations, give employees equity in the company, re-arrange Sony to have a startup culture rather than a big company culture.
