I worked at Sony PlayStation full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Average benefits and good discount off of Sony consumer electronics. Good place for kids straight out of college to work.

Cons

Not only is every division of Sony Corp in separate silos, but each dept at SCEA is in different silos. Company lacks future vision of the Kutaragi years and plateau'd after PS3 launched.

Advice to Management

Get employes excited about working in your workplace! Have more company wide functions to align departments.

    I worked at Sony PlayStation as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay. Cool job. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Misled about career opportunities. Lied to about job stability. Laid off after a forced 2 month unpaid vacation. And as a consultant, zero benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Get real. Get honest. Respect the creativity of your employees. And nurture their loyalty.

    I have been working at Sony PlayStation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment, interesting work, cool people... Lots of training, good budget for gear. Management is competent. Results oriented.

    Cons

    None. Anything negative I might say would be petty. I guess you could say that we have more work than we could possibly do (and we do) but the management knows this, and doesn't make people work themselves to death to do the impossible. They set priorities. But there's just not enough time in the day!
