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

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

Strict for operator

Working as operator is quite tiring. As you need to rush the process and in the same time maintaining the quality for the output to meet the target. But it was fun to work with a well established company.
