    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Sony Electronics full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Tolerant, friendly, supportive culture. Relatively small company so you get exposure to a lot of functions, lean operation. Great place to learn at early stage of your career.

    Cons

    Flat organizational structure, little room to progress for middle managers. Top management heavily influenced by Tokyo HQ. Lack of structured learning and development for staff.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on staff development & career planning Better manage MD transitional period Create more opportunities for career progress (promotion, attachment, skill development) despite the flat structure

    Pros

    Benefits are top notch. Flexible vacation, low out of pocket cost for employees. Good culture, nice group of people to work with. Work life balance! Some work from home opportunities.

    Cons

    You likely won't be promoted, ever. People stay with the company forever. If you are promoted, you won't be paid to market. Salaries are low. All stock must be purchased regardless of level or tenure.
