I worked at Sony Electronics full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great company backing. They want to learn from their employees' experiences.

Higher Salaries. The level of customer service needs to be reflected in the salaries offered across the board.

Advice to Management

Sony needs to be taken to a higher level of customer service like Apple.

    I worked at Sony Electronics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    great gym, product discounts

    The building itself is quite nice

    Brand name still has a lot of cache.

    Cons

    *experienced 3 layoffs in 3 years there (2011-2013), young people and new people into the organization were seemingly always targeted.

    *Very poor communication from top management on when/why/how all these things would happen to employees

    *There is an 'old guard' at Sony Electronics of those who have been there for decades in 'the good times' who hold on to their jobs but don't innovate or think forward. Very ill company culture and morale permeates the organization.

    *All direction on anything important comes from Japan, leaving even the top execs rather powerless at things as simple as the names of a product.

    *Company shrank in business from 6 billion dollars to 3 billion in my few years there, they seem powerless to stop it.

    Advice to Management

    Start developing younger talent, retain your best employees, and innovate or you will continue to lay the company off until it's gone in a few years.
