    I have been working at Sony Pictures Entertainment full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Management tries to make layoffs a last resort. There is room for career growth. The campus is beautiful; amenities abound.

    Cons

    Pay is low, but in line with the other studios as they know that people enjoy the glamour of working in the entertainment industry.

    Pros

    family-like culture where people care about each other.

    Cons

    you work so hard for many years, get promoted then you become a sitting duck waiting to get laid off so they can find a cheaper you. Sony has been picking some bad movies that 10 years ago may have opened to #1, but in todays world that doesn't fly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pick better movies and stop doing favors for Will Smith like After Earth.

    I worked at Sony Pictures Entertainment part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very friendly corporate environment, everyone is trying to be helpful as much as they can. Lots of interactions with senior-levels. Relatively extensive training supports. Information Technology is well managed and up to date.

    You will work closely with your own group so there is a tendency to stay merely with people in the same department

    Pros

    They were one of the best companies and were moving my up the ladder quickly until I had to move back home to Chicago to marry

    Cons

    None - even thought they cut overtime back, they gave it to me because I was on a special project for the Sony Movie Channel. I did a great job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Their values should be studied by other companies as they train, never discriminate and give you all the benefits of a great company
