Pros: great it education department.
Cons: sony no longer has an it department. they have outsourced themselves into virtual extinction.
I worked for Sony Electronics of America for one years. It was a great place to work, with great people. The only complaint I had during my stay was the extremely low pay. Sony in-sourced the IT department here in South West Florida, and then opened all new jobs in the Philippines starting 2006. I declined an invitation to “migrate” to the new company. In-sourcing was all the rage during this time. Every company that tried it, ended in disaster. Sony was number one in consumer electronics, then one year later; their desktop computers were discontinued, and their laptops were all but non-existent. Two weeks after the new in-sourcing company took over, the CEO showed up to find out why new career oriented jobs requiring a college level education were posted at a pay scale lower than that of the local fast food restaurant’s night floor mopper? It was a great place, with the absolute best IT Education department. I learned a lot more at Sony than I ever could have at college, but sadly I don’t see the company ever making a comeback. Until corporations learn the hard lesson, that human capital is the only capital of value on the bottom line, the giants will continue to fall.
