Disconnected Senior Management team, clueless about what it means to work there

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Oakland, CA

ProsPandora is a company that's you're proud to work at because it's one of the most beloved consumer products of the last decade. There are a lot of smart people at Pandora that work hard toward common goals.

ConsPandora has a non-existant company culture. There are companies in the valley that make Pandora look rather pathetic on that front. As they've grown, it's likely that maintaining the culture was an afterthought. There is a general vibe of insecurity throughout the office. While senior management and the executive team are approachable, it is obvious that they are clueless as to what it means to be an employee there on a day-to-day basis. There is also a general sense of dysfunction due to "growing pains." The company hasn't scaled key departments in a functional way that serves employees in the the ways that they should, specifically HR. They've also made some bad, incompetent hires in key roles.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a closer look that your employee's faces and notice if they seem happy or not. Talk to employees at all levels. Invest in fixing the broken culture of the company

    Not bad but a little restrictive

    Key Holder (Former Employee)

    I worked at Pandora full-time for more than a year

    Pros: - good employee discounts, easy to get hours, commission is a nice bonus on top of hourly wages, good… Cons: - too much pressure for a minimum wage job as Pandora really stresses on hourly sales rates for the individual, has a very detailed selling… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
