    I worked at Sony Pictures Entertainment

    Pros

    The Co workers are what makes Sony so wonderful to work for!

    Cons

    Not really anything bad to say about Sony; oh, the coffee they provided wasn't really that strong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of your office and get to know the employees around you.

    I worked at Sony Pictures Entertainment full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, somewhat flexible vacation, cafeteria

    Cons

    An employee can go above and beyond but it's not often reflected by their pay. Salaries overall are not fair, room for growth is mostly non-existent. Upper management and senior executives provide little encouragement. The company releases poor product year after year as if they don't learn from mistakes.

    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.

    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.

    Cons

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