Suggestions for improvement

  • I would improve the workplace environment by allowing a more business casual dress code. I’d allow for longer breaks during the day and permit employees to work from home or their choice of location twice a week.

What I like about the company

The company’s environment is good mainly due to liking my coworkers. We get along well because we share interests. Four times a month or once per week coworkers meet up after hours for happy hour at bars near the company. I also get great discounts.

What I dislike about the company

More in depth instruction and in written form from managers would be useful. More time spent on creative company products over non-beneficial but mandatory team meetings would cause greater worker productivity.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I think HR needs to check in with their employees more and not just the higher ups but the little people who may feel like they don’t have a voice. Better & fair pay. I have worked there for 15 years or so and people who were hired 1 or 2 years ago are making more than me. All employees with the same title should make the same to avoid conflict.

What I like about the company

Most people are great and have been with the company for a very long time so it can feel like you’re working with family.

Some of my best friends I met at Sony.

I’ve enjoyed the volunteer opportunities.

What I dislike about the company

Having a difficult manager who has been allowed to bully employees it would have been appreciated if I had felt more supported by HR.
The lack of growth in certain departments.

  • Leading edge technology, very exciting and fast paced.

What I like about the company

There are good opportunities to advance your a career. Management is very supportive of your ideas and suggestions. Telecommuting is permitted, flexible schedule. The company offers good benefits, and also provide additional training to continue learning new skills. You get to work with some great people from all over the world.
Culture of blame and bullying. Billion dollar start up saddled with an excessive amount of debt, goodwill, and intangible assets on the balance sheet. Bonus and compensation not consistently applied across divisions and arbitrarily determined based upon the good ol' boy network. Turnover is high. Morale is low.

What I dislike about the company

There is a lot of work. Long hours of work is required to meet the project deadlines.
