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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits at a great location and currently undergoing campus improvements. New management team will make improvements.

    Cons

    Layoffs have been so frequent over the last 5 years it leaves an uneasy feeling among employees.

    I have been working at Sony Pictures Entertainment (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I had a great experience working at SPE. The internship program assimilated interns into not only work life at SPE, but the entertainment industry as a whole. The music administrative staff genuinely valued my opinions, and the tasks I was assigned were great learning experiences. SPE is a strong and supportive community and I hope to return there one day!

    Cons

    Sometimes working in the summer business is slow, but it just allowed me to comprehend the music and film business at a low intensity level.

    I worked at Sony Pictures Entertainment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a big name to put on the old resume.

    Cons

    It's in a good location. Looking back it's been nice to have a big name on my resume since a lot of job sites check for that.

    Advice to Management

    They could be a little more encouraging. There seems to be a culture of throwing people under the bus, especially from managers to entry level employees.

    overall great co-workers and lots of projects means good exposure if youre willing to take on the extra work

    I worked at Sony Pictures Entertainment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy company to work for. As an intern, you get put to work immediately, learning hands-on. As a full-time employee, I had positive and helpful management pushing along the daily activities. Exployees get to watch free movies (first come first serve) in the small theatres on the Lot. As a bonus, there is Sony Store and a Pink Berry on site.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are too few employees to do the job correctly, and tasks may fall behind.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to treat employees as part of YOUR team, and they will want to contribute to it.
