Its ok but I would look elsewhere if you want to go up in the company and find new positions.
shipping clerk and production coordiantor . (Former Employee) – Culver, IN – September 17, 2013
Its really a strange place. They have jobs that they need filled yet they do not look at people on the lot that need to fill them and would want to fill them. Its really a tough place to work and make a living.

Production Manager - Intl Client Operations (Former Employee) – Culver City, CA – October 13, 2015
I really enjoyed Sony and both management and co-workers. There was room to advance and they really cared about their employees. Unfortunately family matters pulled me away from full-time work that was far from home.
Archive Coordinator (Current Employee) – Culver City, CA – August 31, 2015
I don't have alot of nice things to say about the company. I've met some wonderful, hardworking people but in terms of growth and reward, I feel there is little hope or chance.
Occasionally there will be a screening that will be interesting to see.
No true vacation time, raises have been on hold for all employees for two year, moving up is based on nepotism or luck, management is unqualified for their roles, hardwork is not rewarded, executives poor decisions, the hack
FINANCE COORDINATOR / PROCARD ADMINISTRATOR (Former Employee) – Culver City, CA – May 20, 2015
A typical day at work involved running/submitting financial reports, analyzing data, corresponding with vendors and business units and meeting with my boss and department to discuss project goals. I enjoyed my position, as I had a lot of autonomy and felt productive and knowledgeable. The best part of my job was corresponding and assisting business units and customers, as well as collaborating with my department. The company morale was high and it appeared evident that employees enjoyed and appreciated working at Sony.
Great work environment, company implements life-work balance initiatives, amazing benefits/401K, etc., amazing employees and culture, great pay, plenty of company activities and events

Director of Motion Picture Production Finance (Current Employee) – Culver City, CA – March 27, 2015
Working in the Motion Picture Department at Sony was always fast paced and full of excitement! It was always great to collaborate with the many Departments involved in creating and making a Movie! My Colleagues varied from Directors, Producers, Executives, Accountants, and the Crew hired to work on each Film, and it was a rewarding experience working with such brilliant Individuals! The most challenging part of my daily work experience was not having enough hours in the day to get everything done! This job has taught me to have tenacity, patience, boldness and to become a "go getter"!
Residuals Administrator (Former Employee) – Culver City, CA – March 13, 2015
I had two incarnations at Sony Pictures. Well, three. I was a Clerk in Marketing Finance for five years and a Contract Administrator for two years; nine years after that ended, I was a Residuals Analyst.
In all three departments, there was a certain snarkiness that I found new and exciting when I was young, but destructive and unpleasant after I'd been around the block. Everyone at Sony was stressed out.
Underpaid, overworked, but rewarding place to work
Worldwide Product Fulfillment Coordinator (Current Employee) – Culver City, CA – March 3, 2015
Coworkers are great, management is questionable. You take on a great deal of responsibility and priorities are somewhat "corporatized" but you end up learning a great amount of information about the industry. I feel somewhat that Sony is a little bit behind as far as technology is concerned. Some of the daily tasks are menial because they do not update their equipment.
learn to manage large workflows
contract employment is abundant, causes lack in benefits

Editor and Post Super (Former Employee) – Culver City, CA – February 12, 2015
Enjoyed the fast paced life style of Sony, the studio that had at the time just purchased the old MGM lot in Culver City. So along with all the new, fascinating tech, there was a definite connection to the past.
