    Pros

    The best thing about working at Sony are some of the entertainers that periodically come through the building. Discounts on Sony products are also good.

    Cons

    Some of the Cons are slow to non existent promotions. Lack of communication from upper level management.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to Management would be to reward those individuals who are really going above and beyond to make a positive difference at the company. And to be more forthright with information, especially when news travels on its own and that may lead people to come up with their own conclusions to things that they may hear or misinterpret.

    Pros

    Decisions are clear, teamwork is great, and level of professionalism is excellent. This is a very considerate and international workplace, where people are treated with respect, from what I've seen.

    Cons

    Rather bureaucratic, with lots of old-school "big corporation" ways of doing things, such as archaic benefits administration software and performance review systems. Decisions drop from the top of the hierarchy ladder down like bombs occasionally. Creativity and innovation "in the trenches" is weeded out and ignored in a conservative, multi-tiered middle-management process.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people and take some risks. Innovate your archaic computer systems and work processes. Checking off boxes on a list is easy, but can strangle quality work that doesn't fit into pre-defined notions–Get outside of the box of the past and move into the future!
