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

    Pros

    Room for growth and company hires from within. Majority of employees work with the company for a long-time (there's little turnover).

    Cons

    Salary is below average for the field for full-time staff. Part-time staff is typically expected to work beyond their scheduled hours (off the clock).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Correct staffing issues and part-time staff pay.

    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 a 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.
