I have been working at Sony DADC full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
You get 2 days off a week and you get a discount on Sony products.Cons
The pay is dreadful, there's no flexibility and the company is a complete and utter SHAMBLES. There's no direction or structure. People make stuff up as they go along and the staff turnover rate is high, due to people getting fed up working for a place where they aren't appreciated. No room for progression, you are stuck in the same role with no career prospects or training. This makes people fed up and want to leave.
For a media company who tries to be a vibrant fun place to work, they have it so wrong. People are unhappy, de-motivated, miserable and hate their jobs. They don't interact or talk to each other which makes a terrible atmosphere.Advice to ManagementAdvice

It's not rocket science.
Give people objectives and targets to move the business forward and reward with days off or bonuses.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO
