    I have been working at Sony Mobile Communications

    Pros

    I had an incredibly hardworking boss, who was very kind and positive, despite the fact he was very busy and held a very high position - he was always friendly to every employee. Work life balance was great.

    Cons

    Should adapt systems uniform to other Sony entities. They were a little behind in using the same ones across campus.

    Advice to Management

    Expand outside hiring (and keeping) majority Japanese people (besides engineers) I understand the ability to communicate with people overseas, but diversity is good too

    Pros

    Very confortable place to work, flexible schedules and great enviroment.

    Cons

    Even do that Sony is one of the must iconic brands in technology, the resources are low, very bad tools to work make you lose a lot of time. To much micro management also.

    Advice to Management

    Should improve tools and opportunities to growth for the employees

    I worked at Sony Mobile Communications full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great work environment, people, salary, benefits and bonuses.

    Cons

    Not innovative enough to be a top player in the Mobile phone business. Mind set of the current Products is still not attractive to customers.

    Advice to Management

    look at the market trend of handset style. Sony has the passion and team, just lacks to want to change. Don't try to be completely different.

    Headquarters never serious about the US business. Slow decisions making.

    Advice to Management

    Take Seriously the Bully behavior of Manager , instead of promoting and rewarding . Else only employee left will be with compulsion to work due to personal situation or who could adapt to Bully culture.
