    Only your ego will benefit from working at Sony Electronics, NOT your bank account!

    Jun 23, 2008 - Staff Engineer in San Diego, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Discounts on products, a few perks here and there, but overall, if you're a little fish in the company, be prepared to be taken advantage of by the big fish. Little room for advancement unless you are Asian. If you are Asian, come work at Sony Electronics cause you will be upper management in no time at all!

    Cons

    Long hours of grueling work with little chance of your ideas seeing the light of day. If you do have a good idea or theory, prepare to have it taken away from you so someone in a higher seat of management so they can take all the credit for it. Plus if you come up with a brilliant idea for a patent, prepare to have that taken away from you too and prepare to be under compensated for the patent... like to the tune of a flat rate of $1500. That's it! You won't be collecting royalties, that's for sure!

    Pros

    Good benefits, people and environment to work in. Pretty flexible with working hours as long as you are doing your job.

    Cons

    Underpay for the job. Favoritism. Too many "not my jobs" and too much finger pointing rather than working on getting the job done.
