  • "Great place to work but not a great deal of opportunity to progress"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Great people, culture and generally a fun place to work

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunity to progress and can end up pigeon holed in the industry. Generally systems and technology aren't at the level you would expect. Salaries and packages aren't at the level you would expect

    Advice to Management

    More attractive salaries and more opportunities to grow in the business would help retain staff

    Junior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sydney
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Sony PlayStation (Sydney) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I went through a 4-step process:
    Online test,
    Google Hangout interview with technical leaders in California,
    Google Hangout with Director of Networking
    and a short meeting with Director of Finance at the office.

    The whole thing took just a little more than a month.
    Sony HR was incredibly responsive and they made me feel welcome at every step along the way.
    The interview questions were rather difficult but my interviewers were giving me friendly tips and advice as we went through the interview. I appreciate that.

    I have accepted their offer.
    Exciting time ahead.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly basic data structure and algorithm questions you could probably find in "Cracking The Coding Interview" book.
      Some Networking related questions as well.   Answer Question
