    I have been working at Sony Electronics full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are amazing here at Sony. The environment is inviting and engaging. I applied for a few positions before I received this position. This is like a dream job. Some of my favorite parts: Engagement events, farmers market, car wash, on site cafe, on-site Gym and so much more.

    Cons

    There are many meetings but I have come to realization that it creates a better environment for collaboration and inclusiveness.

    Flat organization; responsive senior management; market leading products in several categories, particularly image sensors

    I worked at Sony Electronics full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good company to learn and start a career, the benefits are good and there is opportunity to change roles inside the organization while you are on the entry level stage.

    Cons

    Very political organization, the quality of the top management is very bad, there is no clear long term direction and no coaching from their side to their staff. Unfortunately over the years they have made very clear most of the management positions are reserved for Japanese employees.

    Advice to Management

    You need to change your ways fast...

    Busy - but in good way. Need to bring your A game.

    I worked at Sony Electronics (More than a year)

    Pros

    Genuinely nice people.
    "Unlimited vacation" - so they say.

    Cons

    Overworked/Underpaid.
    HR will NOT attract top talent because they only pay at the mid-point.
    Lack of training.
    "Super corporate" environment.
    Often they make "contract to hire" offers, when it's just a contract position and there has been NO budgetary approval for a permanent position down the road.

    Advice to Management

    Pay for top competitive talent!
    Source for competitive top talent rather than waiting for them to come to you because of a good brand name.
    More direction from management.
    Better training.

    Pros

    Sony still produces the best products and services in the industry. Outstanding technical support in the service centers and world class staff.

    Company needs to make changes to the organizational structure. Many support team members, very few business owners.
