    I have been working at PlayStation for more than a year

    Pros

    Less number of people, work is fun, not much pressure. Good for gamers or people who are ready to compromise ambition with leisure in their career. Few really good chaps work in there and its good to converse with them.

    Cons

    Do not expect anything in terms of growth if you are on a contract. Its peanuts. Process is not transparent. Feels like you are being mugged for your contribution tothe projects. Projects are scarce and learning is literally zero. The workplace does not contain the appeal and feel of a game testing lab and has more strict corporate feel to it. Canteen food is a real disappointment. Contracted employees are not... made to be felt as a part of Sony, they are not involved in team outings. Ratio of contracted employee to permanent employee is 1:15 Dependent on other playstaion regional offices to get a project. No direct client interaction. You interact with a QA of other region who interacts with the developer, which results in non-transparent process and zero learning. Logistics are outdated and slow. Zero female employee, all males. The management does not take this department seriously and consider it just a time pass job.

    Advice to Management

    Make the work place more exciting by changing the decoration to make everyone cheered up. Work should be more rewarding by converting the contracted employees into permanent depending on the performance rather than experience, hence gaining loyalty of good employees. Canteen food should be free. Nothing much can be done about the projects since the team dependent on other regions, this should be escalated and... projects should be directly acquired from indie developers so the team can grow. Invest more in equipments and logistics. Have a better gender ratio.

    Positive work environment. Engineers, developers, and other employees who love to work but also love to game. Nerds, but fun and cool nerds. Great benefits and job perks

    Cons

    Management can be frustrating at times but what company doesn't have this problem. Things typically get resolved

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to be technically educated. Nothing is more frustrating than managers who can't grasp fundamental concepts

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at PlayStation full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Discounts on the limited selection of first party games.

    Cons

    Pay isn't great when they're trying to compete and act like a tech company. Benefits are mediocre and don't compare to other companies in the area. Big distinction in work place benefits compared to their first party studios. No employee development or major support towards paying for education. Educational support is on the low end.

    Advice to Management

    Moral of the company is down because of the global restructuring and layoffs. You've let go of individuals who had value in the company, but Jim Ryan is the money man and doesn't understand their value. He only looks to try and cut costs that he doesn't really understand. There's chatter everywhere of people looking to leave. There's also talk coming from London of the type of person Jim Ryan is. This round of... layoffs is not uncommon under his reign and apparently will happen every 2 years if he continues to lead the company.
