Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Sony Electronics full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Management has really turned the company around from a financial perspective. Over the last four years, the company has been focuses heavily on ethical and crafty business practices. Competitive... Salary and strong bonuses last few years. 401k match is probably the best in the industry, ends up being 7.5% of salary + bonus.

Cons

Hours can be long, but results have been showing. Small organization, running lean and mean. Career upside is present, but limited. Not for everyone.

I have been working at PlayStation

Pros

- Great pay and benefits! - Tons of holidays - Management is a joy to work for - People, people, people!! The team is great, full of smart dedicated people! - Good discounts on Sony things! - The... PlayStation is booming!! - Occasional travel to San Diego and San Francisco. Seriously, if you want to have fun doing what you do, what could be more fun than PlayStation, especially in Madison? There are only a handful of companies here that can compete with the Sony for compensation and what would you rather work on? Medical data? Insurance? Construction? No thanks, I’d rather work for PlayStation :)

Cons

- It is a large corporation still, so there are the occasional annoyances that way. But the Madison office is small and mostly insulated from them

Advice to Management

Keep being awesome :)
