"SPE is a GREAT work environment! Great compensation, wonderful campus, thoughtful and employee friendly perks and benefits. Leadership development is strong and encouraged, internal mobility is supported and championed, work-life-balance events are noteworthy and well-received. Of all the studios I have worked with, Sony is cumulatively... the BEST! And it starts with the vision of the executives."

"Great place to work. Everyone was bright and hard working, to say the least. The atmosphere made it feel much less like you were at work, and more like you were working on a movie set. There's tons of resources at your disposal and everyone was friendly."

"While I learned a lot at Sony, I also felt that there was no room to move forward. It made it difficult to continue working on the same types of projects and trying to do well when I knew it wouldn't lead to anything."

"I enjoyed working at Sony Pictures mainly because it was a fun environment to be in. But the work itself was too easy for me and not very challenging. In addition, the staff consisted of mostly older people who had been there for years and years, making it harder to move up unless someone left."
