"Sony Computer Entertainment is a very good overall company, offering their employees a very good working environment, and opportunities to succeed and advance. I always felt good about my position and standing at Sony, but unfortunately was part of a company wide executive initiative to lay off most all of the people that had been there for numerous years, and I had been there since the beginning, having built the QA department. I would still highly recommend SCEA to anyone."

"I worked for SCEA for a time and while the company was a fun company to work for, and most of my coworkers were wonderful people, my manager made the place hostile and demoralizing. I lasted longer than anyone else who held my position before me, but the company's insistence on keeping terrible managers made it impossible to stay at and grow in."

in Foster City, CA

"I've been here for some time now. There is no real chance to move up. Great for experience. Not recommended for the long term. Their staffing company really destroys the chance to be an actual Sony employee there. Great job to have if you're right out of high school."

QA Engineer
in Foster City, CA

"Working at Sony Entertainment in Korea was a valuable experience. My responsibilities were very similar to the principle duties of a QA supervisor. I tested the functionality of software, detected potential issues, translated between multiple languages, and many more. On one hand, I learned how to accomplish each technical task; on the other, I learned how to problem solve and adapted to the work environment."

Technical Operations Specialist
in San Mateo, CA

"I've been with this company for a total of 5 years and have moved up in the ranks and into various groups internally. It is an exciting place to work as the gaming industry is a particular passion of mine. Though there are some upper management disconnect with the current job I perform and their expectations. Otherwise, the environment is very lively and my immediate coworkers are excellent people to work with. I would recommend this company to anyone interested in the gaming industry."

"I enjoyed working for SCEA, but it was a poor company at which to begin my career. Unfortunately, there is very little room for growth -- aside from a select important few, layoffs are the norm for most employees."

Sony Computer Entertainment Employee
in Foster City, CA

"I worked at Sony Playstation for nine months. They are so paranoid about outsiders stealing their secrets that you can actually get in trouble for asking questions. It made my job as a liaison between software developers and tech writers documenting the installation and use of their code almost impossible.Workstations and equipment for debugging the Playstations were outstanding."
