      The Titanic in every sense

      Pros

      Mostly nice people. Summer Fridays.

      Cons

      Only good if you have a few years left till retirement and are OK to grit it out short term. Everything is old tech, old process, old mentality. Most people here are institutionalised survivors from decades of continuous layoffs who are still thinking of the heydays of walkmans and VCRs. No learning happens here. The longer you stay the less valuable you become. And there is NO career development. Dir.'s a micromanaging bully clueless about digital and has no sense of what is involved to do anything other than in systems that are older than uni grads. For anyone starting out professionally or who wants to stay relevant in their line of work, this should be the last option. Don't let the name fool you. Cheers. Stop keeping around clueless people in senior positions just because they are your friends. Yes, we know you all have been there 20+ years but just like any machine, when a part is broken or very worn out and not working, you need to replace it.

      Dreadful

      Pros

      People I worked with were mostly polite and nice. Work life balance is promoted.

      Cons

      I feel like I wasted so much of my life here. There is no career growth. There is no learning of new technology. Too frequent organization shuffle and the bi-annual layoffs are part of life. Just not a good place to be. No appreciation or benefit for working hard.

      Aging company, no innovation

      Pros

      Good benefits including nice discount on Sony products.

      Cons

      Lots of bureaucracy, stifling any chance of innovation. Japan HQ unwilling to listen to or make changes based on feedback from non-Japanese leaders/employees. Lots of shuffling of long-time employees and very little hiring/cultivating fresh talent. Consistent layoffs every fiscal year due to decreasing revenue from poor management/product decisions.
