Great PlaceDec 9, 2022 - DirectorRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
PlayStation is an iconic brand, and people love us. Our mission is to push the boundaries of play and ultimately to make people happy. We aren't solving for world peace or saving lives so the stress isn't at a crisis level. There's just enough to fuel your days with some excitement. Working here is different than any company I have ever worked for. First, people of all backgrounds seem to want to work here--there is no shortage of people applying to our jobs. Second, we have incredible benefits at an affordable cost. And our benefits are expansive--IVF coverage, backup child care, etc. --amazing! Third, the people PlayStation is bringing in are best-in-class leaders who are helping shape the future of the company. It's a great time to join. Forth, we stand by the communities we live in. PlayStation committed $100M to social justice to improve lives and increase opportunities for underrepresented groups. Our commitment at PlayStation to DE&I is like nothing I have ever seen. Fifth and final comment: the people here are very supportive of one another and friendly. It's a happy workplace.
PlayStation at times can seem like a giant start-up. There's a lot of transformational work happening. If you are someone who wants to go where everything is perfectly laid out for you, this isn't the right place to work. Critical thinking skills are needed here, so if you don't want to use your brain, this isn't the gig for you.Continue reading

Great first job, little growth afterwardsMar 2, 2023 - Project Manager in San Diego, CARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
-Great for getting your foot in the door of the games industry -Gain a lot of experience across projects and possibly departments, valuable intial learning opportunity. Helps you jump to other companies after a few years -You get your name in the credits of major titles and has some additional perks like free PS Plus and games. -Many seniors are very approachable and love to answer questions. It's a cool experience to gain so much insight
-they are looking for scale, not individual talent or skill. Your growth matters little to them and most are treated as expendable. Most people are kept as contractors for years longer than they should be. If you have a problem, then leave and they will quickly replace you -the pay is on the low end of the spectrum -HR and Upper management is a joke when it comes to complaints about poor management or harassment. The people who have stayed the longest are basically on tenure and are untouchable.
We are sorry you didn't enjoy your experience here. We are committed to providing a diverse and equitable environment where all have a chance to thrive and grow. Because our people do tend to stay with us for a long time, depending on your role, it can be more of a challenge to move up. Last, we do take claims of harassment very seriously and have an open-door policy for all employees with no fear of retaliation.
