  2. "Best place to play (work) in Madison!!!"

      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I have been working at PlayStation

      Pros

      - Great pay and benefits! - Tons of holidays - Management is a joy to work for - People, people, people!! The team is great, full of smart dedicated people! - Good discounts on Sony things! - The PlayStation is booming!! - Occasional travel to San Diego and San Francisco. Seriously, if you want to have fun doing what you do, what could be more fun than PlayStation, especially in Madison? There are only a handful of companies...

      Cons

      - It is a large corporation still, so there are the occasional annoyances that way. But the Madison office is small and mostly insulated from them

      Advice to Management

      Keep being awesome :)

          Advice to Management

          To have a global teams and different offices around the world,give opportunity for people to work in different offices. San diego has a policy that everyone should be located in that location and this not a reality anymore.
