    Pros

    The company looks after its employees with decent benefits and compensation. The lines of business are very diverse so there are potentially many opportunities to expand one's horizon. The number of available holidays throughout the year helps out with the work-life balance issues for those who need a hand in that area.

    Cons

    The entertainment industry is a very fluid business where the "feast or famine" business cycles sometime can create havoc in planning for projects and going for funding. The nature of the show-biz workplace tends to place more emphasis on personality than process for getting things done. Then, again, welcome to the working world.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great to create more collaboration projects with other Sony sister companies. Those collaboration projects tend to lead to innovations or changes that can create new learning and growing opportunities for everyone involved within the organization.

    Pros

    Close to where I live, carries a good brand name

    Cons

    even If you are offered a million dollor job just run, I had been hired to work on Lotus Notes Migration to SharePoint, and part of my job was to analyse the requiremnts, the Enterprise & Corporate Technology is like your neighbors from hell! Sony is no longer a cool rich Japanese company, most employees are hired because they asked for lowest possible salaries, the level of professionalisem is extremly low, mostly managed from offices of Sony in Inida now, the company tries to copy what TimeWarner does. with tours around the studioes - which are mostly empty!

    Advice to Management

    Please hire people with relevant experinece in their field. you need a shake down. specially in Technology.
