    Pros

    Big company so lots of interaction with different people. Put on lots of different projects. Pay was really good for how much work you do

    Cons

    No room for growth. Stubborn upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    recognize talent when it is needed. Don't be too stingy with benefits

    I worked at Sony full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Bend is a lovely place and the people are all very friendly and talented. The Character Modeling Supervisor and his team are some of the best people I have had the pleasure to work with in my 15 years of professional experience. They are very family oriented and it means alot to a father of two young children.

    Cons

    it is secluded and some of the folks there have become complacent and are waiting for their chance cash out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at Sony full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent employee benefits including contributions and discounts(sometimes) the work is ok depending on which department you are in.

    Cons

    Work life balance, for a technology company some of the tech that the employees are given isn't up to what it should be.

    I have been working at Sony

    Pros

    Great corporate culture (even in the midst of a huge staff layoff in March). HR is amazing.

    Cons

    The leadership once Phil Molineaux left was never the same. New President has "something to prove" and is elitist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont get rid of the benefits and perks. SONY has great people that work here; recognize that, or be willing to have them work for the competition (who quite frankly is kicking our behinds).

    I worked at Sony full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The producer of the show was very generous, and the atmosphere is very relaxed

    Cons

    The challenge of working there is that you have to fit into a certain click, and know whom to schmooze.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your staff, not telling them that your position is being eliminated and then hire someone in less than a month after you have been laid off. Stop giving so much to the celebrities and take care of the people who are making your business a success.

    Amazing Internship Experience - Sony PlayStation

    Former Employee - MBA Finance Intern in San Diego, CA
    Former Employee - MBA Finance Intern in San Diego, CA

    I worked at Sony as an intern (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing company with a very unique culture (obviously). Eventhough it's a huge organization, interns will sit with a small group (mine had 1 supervisor, 1 mentor, and 1 'other' who acted like a mentor). Very easy-going office atmosphere, with everyone super welcoming.
    The project itself was meaningful, and my supervisor even reach out to me several weeks later to share how it had been put into practice.
    They really stretch you in terms of learning and practicing new skills.

    Cons

    There are honestly very few cons with this company. My only complain was that I needed more help in figuring out the ins & outs of the organization, where I fit, and who would be touched by my project. Not a complaint, really, but rather something that comes with time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing! Amazing place to be!
