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

    Pros

    Benefits are good, and some of the people are great.

    Cons

    Employee experience will differ greatly between work units. Company as a whole does not function as a single unit, but rather many different companies with no real common goal or direction. Most support groups have the sell their services to internal groups. Egos run big in this company. Have seen successful programs shut down because a different group felt they should be in control.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck
