    I have been working at Sony PlayStation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Strong tradition
    Stability in a fluid industry

    Cons

    The dichotomy of purpose - serve the platform/serve the games, permeates all aspects of the business.
    The uber-traditional hierarchal structure impedes the innovation and growth they so crave.

    Advice to Management

    Flatten out; allow managers, senior managers, and directors to make decisions appropriate decisions without escalating all the way to the top. If you can't trust your leadership, address that; let your creative minds breathe in all groups.

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

    Pros

    excellent vacation and perks. had some of my best times there and can be extremely fun & satisfying place to work if you are under the right management.

    Cons

    Started off great under excellent manager but my negative experience was due to changing over to different manager who was a bully so this may not be your experience.

    Advice to Management

    need to see that a particular mid manager is simply a bully and Recognize a pattern of losing employee after employee - a couple employees simply abandoned their job. makes remarks that crosses the line that can bring lawsuit to company. decisions not made for the good of the company but to satisfy own personality issues. this particular manager needs management training.
