  • "Best place to play (work) in Madison!!!"

    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 :)

    Community Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Mateo, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PlayStation (San Mateo, CA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Pretty straight forward. Online application, HR phone screening, call with hiring manager, Video presentation to the team based on preset task, offer provided. Took a few weeks from the last task to the offer, but I assumed they were finishing with other candidates too.

    Interview Questions

    • Casual conversation.... Interested in previous experience mostly. I didn't find there were any pointless or pre-scripted questions which was nice.   Answer Question
