    Pros

    You are treated very fairly as an employee. Benefits are very good. Work conditions are good. Product quality overall is good.

    Cons

    Used to be a market leader and develop new Technolog and create new markets, but now have degraded into a me-too company that copies others technologies and ideas. Heavy on admin and top level execs contributing little of substance or value. Mostly coasting on past glory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No guts and no glory. I met and worked with both Morita and Ibuka 25 years ago. They had passion and imagination and took risks. You need top management shake ups and to give your middle management a swift kick in the ass. They are sleep-walking through the days. You have great technological talent, but limited imagination and no one who will risk it all.

    Pros

    Sony has been a good company to work for. The benefits are equal if not better thatn most companies and have good 401K and health insurance

    Cons

    Company is at a point that due to the industry of DVD/CD manufacturing, it has had to make cut- backs. It looks not at experience to so the cuts but some are being cut long years of service. In this way the company saves money.
