    I worked at PlayStation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fun Culture, Great People , MD who was passionate about the Brand. Social events and incentives + benefits great. Sales Team leadership was great.

    Cons

    Salary not competitive, OLD systems and technology, No direction from direct management, MD who lived and breathed the brand and cared about everyone was let go after launching the business 20+ years ago. Heartless. Collaboration between departments is not encouraged. Absolute boys club, no female managers. My manager would pile work on top of me even though i was struggling and concerns were laughed off.

    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

    I worked at PlayStation full-time

    Pros

    Amazing products, world renown brand, great culture, fantastic people, great office location, constantly changing landscape.

    Cons

    There is a real lack of real leadership with constant changes in direction and strategy. Senior management tends to micromanage and does not allow staff to make critical decisions. Everything was run by committee having to go through 3 or 4 people to get a decision made.
