    Highly ambitious projects are achieved eventually and the company is comfortable to be an early adopter of change. Sony Electronics is the most organised of all the Sony sister groups.


    The speed of change is ice age slow, the decision matrix for simple changes is ridiculous. The culture is one of consensus before change which slows down decisions greatly. Culture is stagnant and not cutting edge as you'd expect from a well established electronics company. Innovation of a broader product portfolio is poor. New versions of the same category of products are released year after year. Aibo, PlayStation Classic and releasing a watch well after everyone else has done it are examples of a lack of innovation. Mainly only Japanese men will achieve high level roles, although there are a few examples of diversity in the US. There is a culture of the haves and have not's amongst sister companies, PlayStation and the rest. Feedback is requested through global employee surveys but it is a lip service exercise and no action is taken.
