    I have been working at Sony Electronics full-time (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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sony Electronics (San Diego, CA) in March 2020.

    Interview

    I did not hear from the recruiter for almost a month. When I followed up, the recruiter emailed me many times asking how soon I could begin working, and scheduled me for an interview. The interview was on-site in San Diego with 4 members of what would be my future team. It was about an hour long, semi-professional. They mostly asked me to describe my previous work experience and prompted me further questions about my research protocol. I heard back from the recruiter a few days later.
