    Pros

    Great experience in the entertainment/radio industry while getting the chance to rub elbows with actors, musicians, athletes, etc. Laid back, creative environment.

    Cons

    Use unpaid interns rather than hire entry-level employees. Not much opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your interns.

    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.

    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!

    Former Employee - Associate Producer in Washington, DC

    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

    Former Employee - Billing Representative in Washington, DC

    Pros

    It's a virtual smorgasbord of people. You get to meet and socialize with every background and your talents are noticed rather quickly. They offer hot coffee, tea & cocoa all day free for staff. Very relaxed atmosphere.

    Cons

    Parking for the staff, the open floor plan, travel between the buildings and building security. Still thought it was too easy for people to get in and wonder around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't really have any comments or advice for upper management. Maybe watch your mid-level managers. Some of them spent too much time with their feet up for the money they made.
