Vice President of Sales

Anyone working at Sony or Playstation know if they ever have roles for people with a Sales background? (e.g. Account Executive, Account Manager, Customer Success Manager, Solution Engineer, etc.) If so, I would love to connect and see if there's a possibility to work there. It's definitely one of my dream companies, and I believe I have a solid background (6+ years) for at least an entry-level role. If those roles aren't common, any recs for what direction to shift my career towards? Thanks!!

                Pros

                Sony prioritizes work-life balance. The lot is beautiful and the amenities available (free gym with access to classes and training, dental, medical office, cafeteria, happy hours) makes it a fun place to work. The people are nice and it isn't hyper-competitive (except for some departments)

                Cons

                Politics. But, which company doesn't have that?

                    Good benefits if you're fulltime.

                    Cons

                    Lacks growth opportunities. Some colleagues have gone years (6-10+) without any promotions. It's the culture. So if you're seeking growth, this is not the right place.

                      If asked what type of management style to you prefer? How do you feel about micromanagement? How do you answer this professionally? Nobody likes micromanagement so why ask? Maybe bc the manager there does?

                      In an interview is it a good practice to draw examples for answering situational questions from the most recent and relevant experience or should I draw examples from other previous experiences as well?
