I have been working at Sony Online Entertainment as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Creativity, opionions, and just being yourself is encouraged. Feel like writing an idea on one of the white walls or the white boards all over the building feel free to. Its a very laid back and stress free environment.

Cons

They like to do what I call, "Test drive before they buy" so they like to contract you out first before deciding if they want to bring you on full-time or not.

Advice to Management

I am very happy with management and the communication they have with their employee's.

    I worked at Sony Online Entertainment as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free coffee.
    Doughnut and bagels once a week.
    No drug testing (sad that I have to stretch to that for a pro...)

    Cons

    Senior management had no idea who you work (workflow) or some of the abuse you put up with dealing with customers.
    Enough pay to barely make a living in the city they are located.
    No chance of being hired as an official employee for about five years.

    Advice to Management

    Stop only using contract and actually hire people, might give them pride in their work
