Staff Accountant (Current Employee), Culver City, CA – February 3, 2014
The collaboration among coworkers is at its peak at Sony. It is a team-oriented working place which is very helpful for any a new employee. Supervisors always tend to be teachers first before order givers .
Wonderful People and a company cares about great work
Project Coordinator, Television Marketing (Current Employee), Culver City, CA – January 15, 2014
Pros: benefits include healthcare and athletic center facilities, on-site eateries
Cons: recent cutbacks, difficult to move up quickly, limited hiring for support positions.
One of the greatest places I've worked, with no two days the same. In Television Marketing, I focused on making sure all video-related Marketing materials were in top shape for distribution and promotions and always had a fun, supportive, creative team to work with. At times it is difficult to get headcount approved for additional help, so you're always – more... wearing many hats, but all in all the people there make it possible.
In the past year or so, there have been some sizable cutbacks, particularly in regards to workplace culture (fewer organized department events, catered meetings reduced unless executives higher than VP are present, perks like stocked soft drink pantry and monthly office birthday breakfasts done away with entirely), but I'm confident that those will return at some point. – less
Rights Management Counsel (Former Employee), Culver City, CA – December 24, 2013
Pros: nice view, fun people
Cons: very strict corporate culture, no advancement because no one leaves
A great company to work for. However, it is very corporate so you must know your place and at the same time know how to work office politics if you want to either keep your job or advance. There is not so much "work your way to the top", but "hustle your way to the top".
Sony Pictures TV (Former Employee), Miami, FL – November 19, 2013
This place is a joke. High School cliques. Mean girls. Laziness. NO leadership. Bullying. People using slurs. Women wearing shorts and high heels to WORK!! The tighter and shorter your skirt the further you will probably get. Also, if you go to HR they will tell you, you & the person that have the problem, go fix it alone....we are not getting involved. – more... Isn't that what HR is supposed to be there for? To mediate? Not here...beware and make sure you get what your salary will be because they promised me something and after I gave my notice at my job and talked to them again the lowered my number. Good luck in that cesspool. – less
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
Pros: a job
Cons: so many..we shall talk later....
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 Coordinator (Former Employee), Culver City, CA – September 10, 2013
Wheel of Fortune and Sony Pictures Studios are really great companies to work for. There is so much life and culture and Sony that you want to be a part of all the after-hour events. Wheel of Fortune was an amazing company to work for. I learned a lot about myself and what is important to me.

Operations (Current Employee), Culver City, CA – August 6, 2013
Pros: screenings, employee training, discounts
Cons: work/life balance, moving up
Senior management attempts to change corporate culture doesn't always trickle down to department management. As a company the benefits and employee perks are great. Department management varies and can be frustrating.

Pros: gym at work, film screenings, discounts on merch and electronics.
Cons: currently in my group there is no room for advancement, unless i leave for another group within the studio or move to another company.
I love this company. I think this is a great place to work for. My group does some exciting work. My bosses are great. The perks we have our nice such as a gym on the lot for employees to use. In my position I assist two executives and directors. Sometimes I feel like I am being pulled all over the place but I have learned a lot from working here.
Research (Current Employee), Culver City, CA – May 19, 2013
Pros: free movie screenings, wonderful coworkers, yogurt land on the lot
Cons: some departments seemed short-staffed
I've really enjoyed my time here at Sony and I feel like I owe a lot to the people in my department who helped train me. I felt part of a close knit community along with my fellow entry level employees.
