Pleasant working experience. Very little grunt work. I felt like that I made a valuable contribution.

I worked at SiriusXM as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

Structured internship program with orientation, mid-term review and final review. Had the opportunity to have a "snack & meet" with employees who worked their way up through the company. As an intern I was given a free 3-month subscription to SiriusXM, although I did not need it because I was already a subscriber.

Cons

I interned in the finance/accounting department and there did not seem to be an opportunity to actually get hired in that department. Was not given the opportunity to stay on longer than the semester in that position.

    Former Employee - Junior Manager in New York, NY

    I worked at SiriusXM full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Putting out premium product for niche audiences--which was my job--is highly rewarding work. Compensation and benefits are good, especially for more experienced people. The physical plant is top notch, and the work environment generally calm and supportive.

    Cons

    My impression is that junior hires are somewhat underpaid, though I haven't surveyed the competition. Company's marketing efforts aren't great and never have been. Top programming management has a very narrow vision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to kill the golden goose while making changes you THINK might work.

    Surprisingly old-fashioned for such an innovative product.

    I worked at SiriusXM full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I worked with some great people, and you're selling a product people love and are passionate about.

    Cons

    Surprisingly patriarchal and old-fashioned management style. The economics are tight - it always seems like we're one day away from bankruptcy! Even within the tech team, there's very serious concern about the long-term validity of the product and business model.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a little more innovative and fast-moving. Make your management style match the coolness of the brand itself.
