    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at PlayStation

    Pros

    Informal atmosphere, good benefits, good time off. People can be very friendly.

    Cons

    The company feels like it lacks direction. A great deal of bureaucracy strangles innovation. Company feels like it's loosing it's competitive edge in the age of online gaming. HR is a nightmare. No solid plan for advancement within the company. Company doesn't mentor. HR has no strategy in place to retain top talent. Pay is low. Talent is mediocre. Japanese style hierarchy and decision making structure is... out of place in Silicon Valley. The company "events" have become an embarrassing joke (karaoke in the parking lot anyone?).

    Advice to Management

    Please get a competent consulting group in here to look at management practices! Be more open with employees. Hire talent with solid backgrounds and some real management experience. Stop hiring internally from the Test department! This isn't the 90's! Fire half of the marketing staff.
