I worked at Sony PlayStation as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Work/Life Balance was good. Interaction within a group was good. You could talk and discuss work with your manager at any time.

Cons

Interaction among groups are a little less. They did not hold a group gathering for interns where interns from other department could meet at one place.

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

    Pros

    Everyone is great to work with. Most people are smart and hard working. Plenty of team building events throughout the year. Lots of little perks.

    Cons

    They will work you to the bone day in day out. Expected to work long hours. There is no real structure to projects. Most of the management have unrealistic time tables. Difficult to move up in the company. A bit understaffed. On the lower pay scale for this type of company. No appreciation of the hard work accomplished when going above and beyond the call of duty.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Help them improve themselves by giving them satisfying work. Challenge them daily, but be reasonable of your expectations. Give constant feedback so they know how well they are doing and what they can do to move up.

    I worked at Sony PlayStation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great product, friendly co-workers, fun industry. I loved work here at PlayStation, mostly because of the industry. I learned a lot of what NOT to do!

    Cons

    Executive Mgmt is clueless. PS Move, 3D and PS Vita are all failures. PS Mobile will be the next failure. I don't have a lot of confidence that Orbis will sell well as I don't see it selling to the casual audience. They simply don't need it. The company is quickly losing support of their 3rd Party Publishers.

    Advice to Management

    Improve marketing and focus on your core gamer. Repair the relationship with 3rd Party Publishers. Stop investing in low margin areas where you can't compete, like casual games. Focus on the core gamer. That is your market!
