Comfortable environment to work with friendly members.

-Work in R&D department, support engineer -Learn about wiring diagram, product quality, and re-work -Workplace is too friendly, every members keep supporting each other -The hardest part is when release a new product. Need to focus on procedure and work hard to get a good product. -Most enjoyable part is when work together with other members from another department, can gain a new knowledge and experience.

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"

Japanese Discipline in production environment

A company which emphasize a lot on discipline and continuous improvement activity (Kaizen). Since it is a manufacturing plant, work can be stressful when there are issues arises at night. Overall a good place to learn many valuable knowledge and social skill.

Pros

Good for fresh graduates

Cons

lack of work life balance.

Learning opportunity are limited. Do not provide sufficient working tools ie workstation or software.

Working in the factory is very strict and long working hours. Time-out is not allow and difficult in getting leave to be approved. Learned from the Japanese culture which is they are loyal and prepare to work long hours and less pay. The hardest part of the job is insufficient tools for us to carry out our duties ie limited workstation and software The most enjoyable time is year end celebration party when everyone get together enjoy the good time.

Pros

Company provide accomodation and transportation

Cons

Working for long hours, weekend for rework and midnight call for support.
