    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sony has some of the best products on earth but they dont market them to the world which I feel is a reason for financial problems. As a ambassador i constantly heard I never knew Sony made such cool products

    I worked at Sony full-time

    Pros

    I had a rewarding experience as far as diversity of opportunities goes. Lots of projects, decent amount of empowerment, great colleagues. Benefits were good as was time off policy.

    Cons

    Politics could be rough and the policy of starting salary compared to what should be paid based on workload and achievements was frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more upfront with employees about promotions and pay increases. Be realistic about workload and expectations and properly reward those that deserve to be rewarded.

    Sony, The one and only

    I have been working at Sony

    Pros

    A company that puts for effort into showing respect for employees. You get to interact with a lot of great people and have fun with cool electronics.

    Cons

    The retail division isn't treated great due to little vision. This adds stress to the employees. Metrics that don't take into account for other responsibilities given for example
