    Working across cultures and with overseas headquarters can make work decisions challenging. Work-life balance initiatives are not yet evenly available across all departments and functions.

    Toxic culture, incopitent middle manegment

    Jun 8, 2022 - Shift Leader/RSS in San Diego, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    good products, (when competitive) good benefits

    Cons

    Sell Out leadership does not care bout their employees. Regional VPs and TSMs do not support their staff. Culture is broken. Senior management continually weeds out senior sales team members who are performing well. Corporate continually picks off senior team members with great sales results. Corporate finds excuses to terminate to save money. Then replace them with young inexperienced personnel at half the compensation structure. Remember boy band Menudo from the 80's /90's. They all get axed at the age of 16

    Pros

    The pool of talent and the diversity is great. Sony sincerely believes in diversity and inclusion and has created a nurturing environment for employees. The benefits and perks are also good and management works hard to be a competitive employer.

    Cons

    Outside of marketing and science-based roles, it's very hard to get ahead solely on performance, unless you are a Japanese appointee or work closely with someone in upper management.
