Old company, old practices, old mindset-- obsolescence imminent

Marketing (Current Employee)
Foster City, CA (US)

I have been working at Sony PlayStation

ProsCool product, street cred from others b/c you work there, pride in affiliation with cool brand

ConsPalpable friction between departments, lots of talking about teams/people behind their back, employees seem openly dissatisfied-- every meeting seems to end with somebody complaining about someone or something-- just a generally very sad and depressing working environment

Advice to Senior Managementmore focus on good ideas rather than seniority or tenure. Trusting people (or hiring people you trust) should lessen the bloated bureaucracy at the company and allow for faster decision making.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
