Harmonious & Friendly workplace

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
A family-like working environment. Courteous and friendly subordinates and superiors. Learned 5S (Japanese way of housekeeping), Kaizen and Lean management. Open management, no office politics. A blend of both Japanese & Malaysian way of work culture. High mix, low volume production is the hardest part, while rewards and recognition from top management is the most enjoyable part of the job.

Pros

Remuneration & benefits

Cons

No job rotation

Not family friendly environment

Good start for freshies. They dont favor married employees. They expect u to stay back everyday. Work culture, they work at night. During day, relaxed because overtimes are paid. Once u have a child, better to find another comp. Nowadays, they prefer hiring through universities. They dont practice and tolerate with family matter. The managers are only concern about their position. The engineers work like a dog. Inhuman. Dont practice good kpi reviews

Pros

None

Cons

Work like a robot.

Good work enviromenrt with a good college

Finish an internship program at Sony was good experience for me as a fresh graduate. The task given must be complete by the dateline given. I have learned a lot of new things for example, I have been placed into Software Quality Assurance department which is provide me experience in software testing and also i have learn new thing like how to use a hardware for support the testing like Raspberry pi and other micro controller.The management was good. I strongly like the workplace culture in Sony. Most of them are work in team and they help each other when one of them have a problem and try to solve the problem together. The hardest part of the job is when it comes to work under pressure. When receive the task that suddenly have to finish it by that day and combine with the daily task that have to finish by that day too, i have to struggle to manage all the task given to finish it to avoid the overdue date to submit the task give. I prefer over time to finish all the task given. Lastly, the most enjoyable part of the job is the work life balance. The time hour for office is flexible and it easy for employee to manage their time to complete their work and it also give their employee three time to take a break from work and relax.

Pros

Healthcare, convenient cafe

Good for Beginners, Bad for Seniors

A typical day consists of many problem solving. You gain many engineering skills such as debugging, problem solving, and stress management skills. However professional skills are virtually non existent. Management is good and open to your thoughts however they have many ways to counter your suggestions, all for the greater good. The hardest part of the job is to hold a huge responsibility at the start of your career. Most enjoyable is the expats and managers who cares for you and considers your work/life balance.

Pros

Colleagues are friendly and helpful.

Cons

Going back on time is considered "early"

Dull and boring workplace

It's a operational production base (factory) so it is dull and the work culture is exhausting. The management seems lousy especially the supervisor and foreman. Tend to look down on its workers especially non-English speaking and newcomers.

Cons

Long working hours, dull work environment
