    I have been working at SiriusXM part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Opportunity to learn a lot. Make many contacts. The people are all very experienced and there's stability, not a lot of people coming in and out.

    Cons

    Much is left to you to figure out. You really have to take the lead because there often is not a clear direction. it's a big company and it takes a lot to get noticed for your work. It is what you make it and you must work hard, often long hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People need to feel more included in the mission of the company but not just generalities. Each individuals should be made to understand his or her unique need.

    I have been working at SiriusXM as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I was an intern so i had the opportunity to learn the ins and out of the satellite radio industry. The office had a great atmosphere, and the best part was free drinks!

    Cons

    While everyone the office is very open and talkative, its hard to grow within the company. I thought that the transition from intern to employee would be easier but it was not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider looking more into hiring interns that can bring more to the table. Not just interns that interned there longer than others.

    Pros

    It's a job! Nice people and it helps to work somewhere you can be proud of the product.

    Cons

    Executive and director level employees are too "busy" or "important" to take time to listen to good ideas from lower level employees. In other cases, senior level people take credit for hard work that their staff does then passes the buck if something goes wrong. You will not be mentored nor encouraged to mentor others.

    I worked at SiriusXM as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Management and HR are really nice. Laid back atmosphere. Free beverages in the kitchen. Great brand name for resumes.

    Cons

    Unpaid internship. No reimbursements for expenses. Can be some down days where you don't do much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you don't pay your interns, at least reimburse then for travel and food. People will work harder if you do!

    I worked at SiriusXM part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You can literally walk down the halls, drinking free starbucks, and walk past 25 different stations. If you're a radio nerd, then you'll be in love. The building is so cool plus sometimes you get to walk past celebrities randomly...Most of the staff there are pretty awesome and open...managers, I may have only encountered the good ones, but were always receptive to questions and concerns...You don't have corporate breathing down your neck.

    Cons

    Very few Full-Time jobs. Pay is typically less than you would like and most of the time set-in-stone. Most of the FT positions are taken, and people tend to stay forever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    offer more incentives to your employees. Change up the pretzels. Have room for advancement
