Pros

We did have interesting projects that were fun to work on. Unfortunately, there was a considerable amount of us versus them attitude that ran through most of the work going on including defining products and managing projects.

Cons

Lack of career direction given from individual managers. They like for you to work, but don't really provide any growth potential unless you're one of the favored individuals.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your members, avoid the politics of "us versus them" teams, and give some creative latitude. And most of all, give those hard working individuals a chance to have their voices heard. Not just those who might have been there from the early days who now want to control everything.

    I worked at SiriusXM

    Pros

    Relatively small workforce allows for access to top executives, and an ability to impact operations soon after joining. The company does provide excellent benefits, with a fantastic work location in midtown Manhattan. Like many entertainment companies, dress is generally casual, and the majority of people are friendly. There are also occasionally free shows that employees can show up and listen to when musicians come to perform on a particular channel. The best part of working at Sirius is that people generally have heard of it, and the people who use the service genuinely like it unlike many companies you could work for where you're marketing a product that just doesnt matter.

    Cons

    Horrendous communication and support from Human Resources, generally low morale related to lack of success in the business over the last two years. The focus on providing the best music service possible has been uneven for the last few years due to the distractions of the merger, economic conditions, and frequent changes at the senior executive level. There is significant turnover at the lower levels, and of course with the recent merger there have been numerous layoffs which many people are focused on instead of running the business. Ultimately, the way corporate policy is communicated throughout the company is probably the worst I've ever seen, and as most people who work at the company know, this is directly the result of atrocious HR department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your customer service representatives better, and focus the marketing message better.

    I have been working at SiriusXM

    Pros

    Cutting edge radio that nobody else in the radio business can do
    Great studios and great equipment to work with for the most part
    Great co-workers who work very hard and are very dedicated
    Good benefits compared to a lot of other places
    A great Christmas party every year

    Cons

    Low salaries compared to terrestrial stations and especially to TV jobs that are similar
    Long hours are required with no overtime paid
    Little recognition for producing great radio on a daily basis and little incentive to continue to do that other than to keep a job
    Middle and senior management seem more concerned with not making waves and keeping their jobs than working with the drones that do all the work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the hard work the troops in the trenches are doing. The senior management does not seem to understand or care how hard these people work.
