    Pros

    The people in the engineering team are friendly, helpful, and overall, extremely talented. Teams are small, individuals have lots of responsibility, but can also make a significant impact. Work/life balance is good. Madison is a great town.

    Cons

    Management seems risk averse, and as if their strategy is simply to cling to the products which have generated revenue in the past. If Sony is going to slow its slide into irrelevance, someone in management is going to have to exhibit real vision and leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your engineers. They have great ideas, but they need the time and resources to work on them.

    Pros

    Some great co workers, very flexible with vacation and sick time if you use it.

    Cons

    Poor managment, layoffs, aging IT infrastructure, high pressure to do more and more for less pay

    Advice to Management

    Need to communicate more between departments. Need to reward the most dedicated employees with proper raise instead of promoting the worst employees.

    Interesting products to work on in a very creative and fun industry. Engineers have a big say in the work that goes on here.

    Very little interaction between people. Very little social activity for the people in the company.

    Pros

    Work with great people on a really great product. Lots of freedom to explore new technologies and people are very open to listening to new and different ideas.

    Cons

    There could be better communication between parts of the company although I feel that is improving. Sony has had a rough year and some decisions that get made at the corporate level shouldn't really apply for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a lot of the stuff you're doing now. Keep working to improve communications and being creative and sharing. Continue to hire more people.


  9. Great people to work with; but doesn't have latest technologies
