    I have been working at Sony PlayStation (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    Logistics are outdated and slow.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.
