I have been working at Sony Electronics full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

It's great to work for a company where the employees are passionate about the products, the customers, and the employees. It's always fun to introduce new break through products such as the full-frame compact camera, the RX1. Professional photographers are going nuts over this product.

Cons

It can be very frustrating having our hands tied by corporate in Tokyo. They need to trust the US marketing team to know our market and please our customers.

Advice to Management

Ensure that you encourage passionate employees to remain passionate. Light a fire under those who are not.

    Pros

    Working for Sony is an honor. The company has an amazing history and many of us have grown up with the brand. Work life balance is okay, but the leaner the company gets, the more work there is to do. The technology is always changing which provides opportunities to become part of a team to market that new technology to customers

    Cons

    Several layoffs over the past few years have decreased employee loyalty and morale is down. Layoffs have made job stability a larger concern. The amount of work with layoffs has increased dramatically. Career path is hard to define in many cases. The larger scale of the company means several layers of approval are needed to move forward with projects in a timely, efficient manner.

    I have been working at Sony Electronics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great employees who are all very friendly and have some great product knowledge. Everyone works with everyone employee wise to pick up shifts or trade them so if you need a day off you can always rely on someone.
    Everyone employee wise is real close knit they will help you reach your sales goals.

    Cons

    Shady management staff who tries to get rid of people they don't personally like.
    Terrible Hr staff, personally the worst i've dealt with. Josette never listens to the employees side of the story and goes straight for the managements side even when they're in the wrong.
    Management and employees live by two separate sets of rules, management can be late as they want to be with no consequences and the employee staff even if they call in or have an emergency get written up.
    Managers do not lead by example creating a very stressful environment.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bringing personal matters into the workplace.
    Get a new Hr person.
    Stop covering for each other while the employees look on the situations powerless to do anything.
