    I have been working at Sony full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun environment. People trust and respect each other. Great artist roster. Beautiful modern building and amenities in a great non-commercial neighborhood. Close to lots of transportation. Employee friendly. Awesomely progressive benefits. The business is in GROWTH mode. People seem genuinely happy and collegial. Overall, strong leadership. The company has so much cache. My family is so proud to know I work her and my friends are super impressed too.

    Cons

    Employee discounts on Sony products are not as much as I expected.

    I worked at Sony full-time

    Pros

    People collaborate for the tasks well. They are proud of the well-known brand, and work hard to make the reputation better.

    Cons

    Sometimes difficult to interact with others if you don't speak Japanese. People work long hours (they come to office around 9am, and leave around 8/9pm. Many colleagues eat dinner at company's cafeteria).

    I have been working at Sony full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Don’t have to sell the name.

    Cons

    I’ve never felt so unappreciated in my entire career.

    Advice to Management

    Pls attend Management 101 at your local college and find some people skills. Managers are supposed to encourage and inspire their people not beat them day after day with a bamboo stick. I guess I had higher expectations from my mentors, my fault.
