    I worked at Pandora

    Pros

    In house concerts, casual dress code, beloved product, nice people

    Cons

    WAY too much politics at the senior level; some departments have zero work life balance, incompetent people are allowed to remain for far too long

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace most of the old executive/senior staff

    I have been working at Pandora full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    A wide variety of technologies, good work is valued, no drama or negativity, lots of exposure to new music and fun stuff going on in Oakland

    Cons

    You have to be kind of a self-starter and figure out what needs to get done by yourself. The management structure is pretty flat and informal and if you need to be spoon-fed your tasks you will not enjoy it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider instituting a program like Google's 20% where people can work on projects that interest them, independent of corporate priorities. The hackathons are nice but something on-going would be better
