I have been working at Sony PlayStation full-time

Pros

Benefits are decent and the pay is around or above market value for the area. Most employees are pretty friendly and laid back. Work is interesting and challenging. Management is pretty tech savvy.

Cons

Not too much interaction between different teams. Most people don't know what other teams are working on. Management structure is pretty flat so there is little room for career progression.

Advice to Management

Company is growing larger, but management should still maintain and insist on an open door policy. Keeping employees "in the loop" helps everyone out.

    I have been working at Sony PlayStation full-time

    Pros

    Exciting industry, cutting edge enterainment products. Flexibility to plan your schedule from Jan-October.

    Get to try the products first, huge discounts on PlayStation products.

    Cons

    Disorganized R.A.D. department that doesn't give you the tools to effectively do your job and manage your territory.

    Absolutely no opportunity for advancement, as they fill 100% of the open management positions from outside the organization (within the past 3 years anyway).

    Unattainable goals, too much work in too short of deadline to get completed.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within. Family values are on your mission statement, however a PTO blackout longer than our retail partners is unfair. Hiring from outside the company has to stop, Jack Tretton needs to take a close look at how his Senior VP's are performing...

    I worked at Sony PlayStation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very stimulating creative environment. Management is professional and takes an invested interest in employees.

    Cons

    My personal experience was that I had a 57 mile commute one way in heavy traffic.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a great job and best of luck with the launch of the PlayStation 4
