    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    So...you can spend thousands of dollars on pricey leather furniture for VP's office and ridiculously small pricey $8,000 TVs for a large conference rooms, but you can't bump up the base salary on your most valuable asset of your company--your employees Come on.

    I worked at Sony PlayStation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Most permanent QA testers stick around for a long time and no one quits volunteerly.

    Cons

    There are some child-ish customs and regulations set by the management at FQA department (set by the supervisor).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the Sr. testers sit by the corner can surf the net all day without being noticed. They should be taking more leadership in the department and put more efforts into what they do.
