    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

    HR.... Improve the culture and bring some fun into the company !! This is so easily done, create social events once a week out of hours and get people talking and having fun, this will build inter-company relationships and get people talking and working together, resulting in people enjoying their jobs. It's not rocket science.

    Give people objectives and targets to move the business forward and reward with days off or bonuses.
