Loved my job. Did not enjoy the people or management.

Campaign Manager (Current Employee) Oakland, CA

Pros-culture was laid back and easy going
-location in downtown Oakland
-cool product

Cons-HR Dept. full of bad managers, poor leadership who were not interested in really solving problems
-management has no idea what is going on at mid-level so there is lots of ineffciency and redundancy
-misinformation constantly doled out
-leadership was focused only on profit, not on people or career paths, ignored problems and never consulted senior managers about ways to improve service or product
-management was absent, and when present allowed for culture of unprofessionalism
-low-performing employees not reprimanded or terminated
-we were told that we had a voice in changing company policy, but this never happened

Advice to Senior ManagementThe HR dept. is the face of your company, yet they are the most unpleasant department, do something about it! Work on messaging--what the CEO/CFO/COO say are the values of the company should be attainable to everyone, not just a select few.

Get some Standard Operating Procedures on the books--then stick to them. There was a lot of wishy washy indifference from many higher-ups and a lot of inefficient processes and procedures that wasted time and created hideouts for low-performing employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great company to work for.

    I worked at Pandora as a contractor for less than a year


    Pros: The training, atmosphere, concerts, snacks, drinks, etc. were all extremely big pluses working at Pandora. The managers that I had worked under were very efficient… Cons: Seems like management could improve somewhat in other departments, but… Advice to Senior Management: Keep on doing what you are doing, try not too… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
