    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Sony full-time

    Pros

    Work from home benefits and flexibility in hours.

    Cons

    People at the top are rude and uneducated, only getting promoted based on the success of their employees. They take the work of their employees and present them as their own, will stay at the company for 20-30 years benefitting from their lack of knowledge and treat the lower level employees like they don't matter. Turnover is very high which makes it hard to actually accomplishment many projects.

    Advice to Management

    Go away.

    Pros

    Pay is good
    Holidays are generous

    Cons

    HR operates like it’s still 1997
    HR is not responsive
    Constant leadership changes, reorgs, and turf wars
    Culture is not consistent organization wide. different values are upheld depending on which team you’re on.
    Management prefers to “manage out” toxic employees instead of firing them

    Advice to Management

    Unite your workforce. Make the Opcos want to work with us.
