    Pros

    Great people to work with, company really cares what you think based on employee survey, some leaders are very personable, diversity oriented, lots of little perks, leaders try to reward in little ways like free Sprinkles cupcakes during All Hands, celebrate with ice cream for Oscar nominations, happy hour Thursdays with low cost drinks.

    Cons

    HR is terrible as they are very litigious and only care about taking managers point of view rather than listening to employees' concerns. Leadership is far removed from knowledge of product, not as familiar with their own product as they should be, pay not enough for the long hours, likes to overload employees with work instead of hiring more people, middle management not experienced or trained to manage staff/very little management skills.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, offer growth opportunities/promotions.

    Pros

    Great networking opportunity, everybody is very open and willing to talk about anything. They hire interns for full time work.

    Cons

    More tasks for interns to participate in and actually feel apart of the team. Luck of the draw what department you get assigned to.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure interns have things to actually do and not sit there and just watch.

    Pros

    as a major employer in los angeles, you will come across many people who have worked at sony at one time or another. almost all will have a positive experience about the company and the efforts it makes to keep morale high. like any other corporation, some leaders can make for bad experiences. the company invests a lot into the overall environment that all employees can benefit from, such as the many subsidized food options, health and gym services, and many other things.

    Cons

    because much is spent on the overall culture, it is common to find yourself with a below average wage compared to the industry. it may be hard to advance within your department if do not actively seek this out. moving around within the company can also be very difficult if you are of value to your group. as part of a conglomerate, bad decisions by other areas of the company can have a negative impact on the studio.

    Advice to Management

    use your position as an opportunity to create the environment you would have wanted to work in instead of paying bad experiences forward.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Pay is competitive. Positive working environment--people are generally happy.

    Cons

    Tough to make changes in the organization. People are stuck in their ways. Management has been trying to restructure the company for years, but (as stated) its hard to change this company. Constant restructuring has become the norm.
