    I enjoyed working for Sony

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Diego, CA

    ProsGood benefits, good pay - great opportunity for career skills and background.

    ConsLow morale, a lot of lay-offs recently for re-organizations. Promotions and lay-offs not necessarily linked to your skill set, more by the people you know.

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
