    I worked at Sony Electronics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pay is really good and that is why most people stay. Technology is always fun to learn and there is PLENTY of opportunity to TRAVEL.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is horrible. Expect to work every day on vacation. Expect to travel a lot. Layoffs have been constant for the last 7 years. Most people are burnt out and unhappy.

    Advice to Management

    1 billion dollar write off for Sony Pictures. Someone dropped the ball on that one. I would say there need to be more check and balances in place.

    Pros

    Interesting products and global company. I also got to work with very good engineers.

    Cons

    Lack of job security. The number of US employees in SEL went from 25,000 to under 1000 when I was there.

    Advice to Management

    At this point, I think Sony just has to rebuild. They should stick to their core competencies.
