I have been working at Sony PlayStation full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good support for craft most of the time.

Poor collaboration across business units and lack of agility in the marketplace keep Playstation from the #1 spot.

Advice to Management

Please make it easier to work w/ different parts of Sony worldwide. Ex.- smooth out process for working w/ Sony pictures.

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

    Pros

    Most permanent QA testers stick around for a long time and no one quits volunteerly.

    Cons

    There are some child-ish customs and regulations set by the management at FQA department (set by the supervisor).

    Advice to Management

    Some of the Sr. testers sit by the corner can surf the net all day without being noticed. They should be taking more leadership in the department and put more efforts into what they do.

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

    Pros

    - 1 week off for Xmas & NY @ EOY
    - Gym free to all F/T employees on new campus
    - Access to free games
    - etc...

    Cons

    - can be overworked in order to make ends meet
    - low base pay compared to most tech companies in the bay area

    Advice to Management

    So...you can spend thousands of dollars on pricey leather furniture for VP's office and ridiculously small pricey $8,000 TVs for a large conference rooms, but you can't bump up the base salary on your most valuable asset of your company--your employees?? Come on.
