High pressure, lots of rewards if all went well
Manager of casting (Former Employee) –  Culver City, CAMay 18, 2017
There was a lot of pressure to get our pilots to air. During pilot season it was not uncommon to work 10-14 hours a day. It was fun meeting the talent and going to taping. The people I worked with are still some of my closest friends. All in all it was a great experience.
Pros
Fun to work on the lot and great people to work with.
Cons
Long hours, high stress

The studio has changed over time
Executive Assistant (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMay 18, 2017
Like everything in the entertainment business, the strength of the company lies in how good its products are, and how well leadership leads. Right now, Sony Pictures is in a state of flux. With a new CEO coming in, only time will tell if the ship can get back on course.

Fairly Stable company, growing pains
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  Culver City, CAFebruary 23, 2017
Management shakeups the last few years have created some uncertainty at an otherwise well-run company. SONY has many green initiatives (hybrid car program, rideshare, public transportation discounts) and a number of discounts at vendors for employees use. Even employees at the assistant level were awarded bonuses after an overhaul of Human Resources.
Pros
Health benefits, green incentives
Cons
Promotion trajectory uncertain

Sony had great health benefits.
Manager of Contract Administration (Former Employee) –  Culver City, CAFebruary 6, 2017
It all depends on the group of people you work with. Management was passive aggressive. However, the studio was very generous when there were box office successes.
Pros
Depending on Management, the rewards were sometimes fair.
Cons
Raises were not consistent accross the board. If your boss liked you, then you were taken care of.
