Sony Cuts US Jobs


According to the New York Post, Sony Corporation of America (SCA) (which includes Sony Pictures, Sony Music and Sony Electronics) has cut 100 people from its 700-strong workforce. The decision was made by the corporate HQ in Japan, following a poor reception for several recent Sony film releases.

A source told the NYP, “Most of the senior vice president titles and above are going… The parent company is taking over. They don’t need a corporate structure in the US.”

SCA responded to the claims, with a spokesperson saying, “Over 100 is not accurate… A small number of positions were eliminated at SCA earlier this summer to consolidate duplicative functions… These changes at SCA have nothing to do with Sony Pictures whatsoever.”
