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

    Pros

    Fair pay, insurance, 401k, 4-on-4-off. several different departments to work in. It's really not a difficult job so long as you enjoy your co-workers.

    Cons

    12-hour shifts, no union, kaizan, not a lot of room to move up unless you continue furthering your educational qualifications. No one knows how much longer it will be open.

    Advice to Management

    Differentiate your products, both from competitors and in what you produce. Make usb drives or other digital electronic storage media to prolong your market exposure. Maybe pre-loaded memory cards that have ten albums or five movies on them.

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

    Pros

    - Enjoy the people I work with.
    - Often hire from within.
    - Many people with 10 - 15+ years with the company
    - Great place to get your foot in the door as a group lead or supervisor.
    - Alot of freedom in my current position.

    Cons

    - As a BIG company, Sony is as backward as any. They do not support their many different subsidiaries to be cohesive with each other.
    - Quickly dying industry, in an era of streaming and instant internet gratification, physical media is pretty much out the door.
    - Difficult to get Education reimbursement.
    - Compensation is less than at other similar industries.

    Advice to Management

    Support & grow your people, there. Pay them better, 1 - 3% raises do not instill confidence or the want to stay with the company.
