    Pros

    - Great product
    - "Cool" image

    Cons

    The other review mentioning that there is no company culture is spot on. If there used to be one, its gone. Upper management is indeed disconnected, and many of the upper management staff are engaged in full-on turf wars that are hurting the company's growth and employee moral.

    Talented people aren't being hired because of the insecurities of some of the hiring managers. Large initiatives are stalled or moving in the wrong direction because people are more interested in taking the credit for themsleves and/or protecting their turf than working nicely together.

    If Pandora lasts through 2013 without going out of business, getting acquired, or completely changing their business model, I'll be astounded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Define a company vision, evangelize it, and stick to it
    - Tell the turf war participants to play nice, or find jobs elsewhere
    - focus on employee career development.

    Pros

    Great people, casual atmosphere, exciting product.

    Cons

    Company direction seems a bit nebulous. Very difficult to push for change in any area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop tiptoeing around the big issues, on-demand and international.
