Team Leader/Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVSeptember 11, 2018
This was the kind of job you go to work and get frazzled by millions of calls but on break or lunch you could go to the recreation room. Throw some hoops, paddle some ping pong balls, destroy opponents in some CoD, or escape life with some No Man's Land. You will be working hard on tech support for new Playstation products to teach people the ropes of their soon to be impossible to live without tech box. You will be rewarded handsomely by your leadership and in general you will be satisfied.
Pros
Free products, quick advancement, best place to work in Vegas, job security
Cons
holidays, high call volume

Sad to see such a great place to work go slowly down.
General Operator 3 (Former Employee) –  Terre Haute, INAugust 9, 2018
When I started there 31 1/2 years ago it was an awsesome place to work.
Through the years due to new technology like downloading,netflicks,hulu and more competitors we started losing customers and order sizes. It was inevetible we would lose people to attrition and downsizing, ultimitly layoffs. Management were very good and did there best with what they were told to due. Now stress is very high and morale is low. The hardest part of the job is running more machines then one person can handle.
Pros
good hourly pay, great bosses and coworkers, clean enviorment
Cons
Less than 40 hours a week, stress level, moral

Injection Mold Machine Operator, Backup GL, Train (Former Employee) –  Terre Haute, INJuly 28, 2018
Sony Digital Disc Corporation has been a thriving company and a great place to work. But, Sony's digital disc is no longer needed. The advancement of technology has placed a low demand for a disc. I give Sony DADC a low rating because of the decline in jobs and the treatment of employees as demand for their product declines.

Packaging Machine Operator, Warehouse Management (Former Employee) –  Terre Haute, INJuly 25, 2018
I wouldn't put your money in on Sony DADC. Blu-Ray discs may have a future but the company is slowly going downhill and has been over the past 20 years or so. Everything is digital.

Manufacturing Facility that is "Downsizing" Production capabilities
Production Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  Terre Haute, INJuly 15, 2018
Typical day & Management: The job can be very stressful due to dealing with management decisions & seasonal / temp labor. I have learned a lot about the various tasks required on the maintenance of the production equipment in order to minimize downtime. Hardest part: dealing with poor managerial decisions when it comes to how to best maintain the production equipment & the raw materials supplied for the product produced by the equipment.
Pros
Decent benefit package, 401K Retirement
Cons
Poorly managed, too many members of management from day 1.
