    I worked at Sony Creative Software full-time for more than 3 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Sony Creative Software

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
